Face recognition technology sets off a boom, security and privacy are indispensable

Existing computer vision technology can identify individual faces and physiques and aggregate them on an individual basis. With the formation of 5G high-speed network channels and the maturity of AI and big data technologies, computer vision technology will undergo revolutionary changes, and face recognition will be more widely researched and developed. In China, cameras equipped with face recognition technology have sprung up on the streets of many big cities, and the scenes of paying for faces are everywhere. While face recognition is on the rise, there are concerns that the technology will be abused. So, what is the “treatment” of face recognition technology in other countries?

The United States is at the stage of legislative disputes as to whether face recognition should be used for law enforcement. At present, states such as Texas, Washington, and Illinois have enacted relevant laws, and some local governments have shown a tendency to be cautious and exclusive to face recognition technology. In January 2019, the center of Silicon Valley, San Francisco, issued a proposal called the Stop Secret Surveillance Ordinance, which prohibits the government from using face recognition technology. Some people clap their hands and think that privacy is protected. Some people vote with their feet, worrying that thieves are unscrupulous and claiming to move away without a camera. After more than three months of parliamentary discussions, the proposal was voted by 8:1. Recently, Microsoft deleted the face recognition database MS-Celeb-1M, which was composed of online pictures of 100,000 celebrities. It was used to train police officers and military-operated facial recognition systems.

Many shopping malls in the UK have enabled smart billboards with built-in face recognition technology to analyze the user's gender, age, and even income levels, and to present different advertisements for different passers-by. When more than 50% of the people passing by billboards are wealthy, billboards show advertisements for expensive products. Currently, there are more than 50 such large screens across the UK. The commercial application of face recognition technology has not been controversial in the UK, but in May 2019, face recognition technology was caught in the whirlpool of public opinion: a London citizen passed a camera with automatic face recognition function, because of the cover The face was fined £90; the first police face recognition case in the UK was opened, and the party claimed that the police station violated privacy. Many citizens in the United Kingdom believe that the use of face recognition technology by the government cannot be reassuring if the law does not ensure that people's rights to privacy and data security are properly protected.

In Russia, facial recognition software is integrated into key infrastructure points such as urban transport, domestic air travel and access to government buildings to speed up security checks and eliminate dangerous situations, such as facial recognition systems for machines that sell mobile phone cards. Face recognition has been enabled at Sheremetyevo Airport and Moscow Airport. Russia plans to monitor the flow of people in real time through city cameras and use face recognition technology to process images taken by the camera. According to reports, by the end of 2019, there will be more than 174,000 outdoor surveillance cameras in the capital. The camera can help investigate traffic accidents, find lost pets, and identify criminals. In addition, the civilian version of the face recognition system “FindFace” developed by Russian startups has been used for urban security monitoring in several regions of Russia. During the 2018 World Cup, the police assisted the police in capturing several lawless elements. The military version was Developed successfully in 2019.

Compared with countries such as Europe and the United States, Southeast Asia is more optimistic about facial recognition technology: Japan, which will usher in the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics in the summer of 2020, will enable face recognition technology at the airport, simplify customs clearance procedures, and During the period, the face recognition system was used to identify holders of administrative and sports facilities tickets; South Korea will introduce a face recognition clearance system at the airport. The system will be piloted at Incheon Airport until 2022, and will be gradually promoted after final testing.

In addition, Kazakhstan, one of the five Central Asian countries, is actively developing a domestic face recognition system for use in the “smart city” system. Currently, some areas of ambulance systems, street lighting and road traffic accidents are photographed and Application systems such as face recognition systems are accelerating the transition to digital.

Conclusion: Technology is also a double-edged sword. The bias of the algorithm needs to be corrected. The problem of using sensitive personal information also needs to be regulated. The government, technology companies, and the public all have responsibilities in the face of the face recognition, and only when they are rational and prudent can they be stable and far-reaching.
