Facial recognition cameras

Recommended Posts

but apparently the technology is used in China to even fine people for Jay-walking.

 

So is it just the system over here that is terrible?

Who said it works any better in China? They could be using an automated system to get several potential matches and have a human review them.

It is not a crime.

 

He was fined for using the f-word at the cop which is a public order offence.

IF thats what it was for he'll win in court. The magistrates have repeatedly ruled that using the F and C words to a copper is not public order as the average copper hears them so often they cannot possibly be offended by them.

No.

 

I think that motorcyclists are exempt

I was thinking more about pedestrians ? 

 

Sure EVERY person these cameras are pointed at should have their face uncovered .

You will have a hard time getting mybeard off which is the easiest way to defeat these... sunglasses and a beard remove almost all the index points.

Absolutely not. If I want to walk around in a balaclava, I’ll do so, thank you very much.

Why should everyone have their face uncovered?

Seriously though, how can this co-exist with GDPR?

I'm wondering that too.  Unless an image of you taken in a public place isn't counted as information about you that you have to consent to be used.  A bit like copyright, you don't own an image of you taken by someone else in a public place.

 

I think it needs looking at though.  I think you have every right to go out in public and expect not to be filmed, not to have your picture taken and used for whatever purpose you haven't consented to, simply by walking down the street.   I guess it's slightly different if you go to a place, or enter a premises that you expect cameras to be.  

 

I'm not particularly thrilled when friends putting photos of me on their Facebook pages, it's an intrusion.  If I'm out with So-and-so, that's who I'm out with, not So-and-so and all their Facebook friends.

 

Must be an absolute nightmare these days for anyone on a witness protection programme!

You don't have a right to stop your photograph being taken in a public place although you do have the right to prevent yourself from being photographed by using some form of disguise.

 

Any photograph taken without consent in a public place is unlikely to be covered by the GDPR regulations.
