Facial Recognition and Loss of Anonymity

Hosted by ,  • 

The features that make up your face are unique to you, just like your fingerprints. Think of it as your "faceprint." Facial recognition technology reads photos or videos to identify you — by name, location and any other personal information that turns up in a database. That has real value for a range of commercial uses — not to mention law enforcement. But the lack of ground rules is raising concerns about privacy and the right to control your personal data.  On this special rebroadcast of To the Point, we look at facial recognition and the loss of privacy.
