As predicted, facial recognition technologies continue to fail miserably:
“Randal Quran Reid, a 29-year-old man more commonly known by his middle name, Quran, was driving to his mother’s residence post-Thanksgiving when police stopped and arrested him on a Georgia interstate. Much to his chagrin, Quran learned he was a suspect for crimes in Louisiana – a state he had never even visited, AP reported.
Held in custody for multiple days, this mishap isn’t unique to Quran. At least four other individuals, including a woman eight months into her pregnancy falsely accused of carjacking, have filed lawsuits against law enforcement for being erroneously identified and arrested due to the controversial technology.”
