FTC issues guidelines on facial recognition technology
The Federal Trade Commission has issued a staff report on best practices for companies using facial recognition technology in their businesses.
"Fortunately, the commercial use of facial recognition technologies is still young," the report states. "This creates a unique opportunity to ensure that as this industry grows, it does so in a way that respects the privacy interests of consumers while preserving the beneficial uses the technology has to offer.”
The report recommends that developers should approach such systems with "privacy in mind" – which sounds nice, but most of them are still concentrating on getting the technology to work as advertised in the first place, at least in El Reg's experience.
