Controversy over the use of facial recognition technology in the UK

According to a study by the University of Cambridge, the use of facial recognition technology (LFR) by British police forces “fails to meet minimum ethical and legal standards”.

After examining the use of LFR by the Metropolitan Police and South Wales, the researchers concluded that the use of the technology should be banned “in all public places”.

LFR couples captured by security cameras, database images to identify matches China and other anti-democratic regimes use this technology as part of government surveillance tools.

UK police are testing their use in a number of situations to fight crime and terrorism. In two cases the LFR was used by the MET and South Wales Police to screen crowds and compare faces to those on a criminal “watchlist”, Engadget cited.

In another case, authorities used FRT smartphone apps to screen crowds and identify “persons of interest in real time,” according to the paper.

In those cases, the panel found that the police “withheld” data about the population and information about how the information was used. This, while raising questions about accountability, made it difficult to ascertain whether the tools were promoting racial profiling.

“Police forces are neither necessary nor responsible for the damage caused by facial recognition technology,” said lead author Ivani Razia Dixit.

The Met said the latest algorithms have improved LRF accuracy, with false alerts below 0.08%, according to The Guardian. They claimed a 70% success rate up to 2020, but an expert from the University of Essex employed by the police found it was actually only 19%.

He said: ‘With the Court of Appeal apparently ruling in 2020 that the use of this technology by South Wales Police was ‘unlawful’, it is difficult to argue that the technology should be used.

However, the Met said his work is supported by the law. He told The Guardian: “The LFR is regulated by a number of legal sources.

These sources of law combine to provide a multi-layered legal framework for the use, regulation and oversight of LFR by law enforcement agencies. “Despite creating legislation around online privacy, the British Parliament is yet to step up.
