Facial recognition technology: Big brother's ultimate weapon against civil liberties
On Line Opinion (2011)
  • Jo Coghlan, Southern Cross University
Abstract
Governments and law enforcement agencies are gradually implementing surveillance technologies that are more accurate, unnoticeable, cheap, pervasive, ubiquitous and searchable in real time. In public places and at work, facial recognition technology is recording and storing your image. The recent surge in popularity of social media sites has further accelerated the gathering and storing of image data.
