  • I’m an English barrister called Killian Garvey (Google me for proof). I’m convinced that John Oliver would make a great barrister based on his ability to communicate and argue

  • my worry with the use of facial recognition software is when it messes up. or if it falls into the hands of private citizens. especially when it comes to CSEM survivors. that's just scary…

  • 10:00 As someone who works in the field of computer vision, i can say this is mainly a matter of physics. dark skincolours have lest difference between skin and shadow making generating shapes with them much harder. nothing to do with racism as it seemed implied. it hs been a common thing for news media to jump and label the people who build systems like this racist but it is just a limitation of cameras.

You spend the first half getting us worried about the inconsistencies of facial recognition software, and spend the rest of it arguing against a facial recognition system that is highly accurate.

  • Say what you want but this is the reason why Wuhan was able to have people out and celebrate New year's this year. It works but only for emergency purposes like you know saving millions of lives from the pandemic. Also they don't need their party to mandate mask use. Citizens will wear it themselves cause they're they don't want others to get sick. How about that white people? Can you be unselfish like that? I don't fucking think so.

  • Would be interesting to see the Republican party divide into three new parties. The MAGA cult, traditional corporate establishment and an ideologically conservative party. Perhaps that could also incentivise movements within the DNC to create parties of their own, shaking up the awful two party system. Although as long corporate donorship remains as important as it is, it's going to be hard to do anything as a non-corporate party.

  • This is hyperbolic and it assumes that the technology is corrupt instead of those employing it. There is no problem one, if the people getting their faces captured have no reason to hide their identity and two, if those who use the tech are not abusing the power. If there is more oversight and accountability then hey, more jobs and fewer risks of the power being corrupted. You can tell when your point is thin after you bring up skynet as a fear of facial recognition.

  • 2:35 "Now you're already looking at her profile" Sure, but *she* put that profile up there. *she* is putting all that information online. All the app does is match the image *she* put online to the image taken by the app. Yes it's creepy but the app does not reveal any information that is not already put online... by the person who owns that information. This is the stupidity of today's world; everybody wants to put their life online and then complans when people can find it. The real problem is that people put all their data online. And it really doesn't take facial recognition, that's just a trivial problem that the privacy-idiots like to wank about. If you have a facebook page and you post something like "going on holiday next week", burglars are watching for that, they'll be sure to check your house next week. (No, tey don't stake out your house because there is something worth stealing, they choose a random house that's easy to get into, preferably unoccupied beause the idiots who live there told the world that they woud not be there for a week) If you don't want the wrong people to get access to your profile, then DON'T PUT IT ONLINE.

  • I'm all for ending hatefulness in our country but the major issue with that software appears to be a matter of brightness and contrast. You can better see this issue if you watch a multiracial video in black and white. Don't get me wrong. I live in Texas. I know racism and discrimination are quite real. All I'm saying is that if we want a real solution, we're going to need to put higher resolution requirement on the cameras used for facial recognition, along with having artistic women work on the development team because they are more likely to see nuance within the darker shades of skin.

  • Yeah I am not a fan of having so much camera activity it’s to the point where you can’t even pull over on the side of the highway and go to the bathroom without being see because you will probably be photographed by Google maps I think we need to start asking ourselves what is your privacy worth and in this day and age can we even have privacy? Are we going to allow the place to be able to violate our fourth amendment without even us knowing it the constitutional amendment that protects for unlawful search and seizure specific and that it states that your personal or your papers so nothing about you on you Or with you can be searched or seized without first obtaining a warrant and presenting it to you but if they can just use the camera to run your license plate and seeing your face without you even knowing it innocently sitting at the first time what happens in the system missidentifies you for someone else
