This is a good idea but because it involves Portland, conservatives are going go apeshit about the government NOT being allowed to identify and track your public movement as soon as you step out your front door.

China loves being to able to track citizens, it's worked out well for them.

I know someone is going to say "well cell phones are tracking you right now hurr durr"

Clearly enacted in Portland by conservatives going apeshit in the first place.

But you do have a point🤣

I'm against it but it's unavoidable

BLM riots and the like are an accelerant, as is China virus

Everybody is being tracked, both by local and foreign authorities (thanks Tik Tok)

It's why I'll be buying into the Palantir IPO this month

You didn't ask me, but I'll jump in. I don't want facial recognition at all, anywhere. Not even on my own phone to unlock it.

But I also think Portland should get no more federal money if they are not willing to take steps to stop the protestors from damaging property. Let the people who live there and encourage it pay to rebuild.

From reading polls on this, It seems public acceptance of FR is at 50/50. The reasoning was basic, those who are for facial recognition trust their government and those against don't trust government use/misuse. Luckystrike is right on the outcome.-

Whenever this topic comes up, I think of people in Minority Report where everyone is being retina scanned, even through their eyelids.

It got to the point where cops would send little robot spiders into buildings to search people out and scan retinas by force.

If the government was a trustworthy entity it would be a good tool, however it's just one more thing government will misuse against the people its job is to protect. But thats not why Portland is doing this. They're ensuring that the rioters of the Burn Loot and Murder movement, which is in reality an anti Trump rally on steroids, will never have any repercussions for their actions. Ted Wheeler hates Trump more than he loves his city. Plain and simple.

To set expectations and awareness about just how good FR is...

Anybody can sign up for a free account with Azure, AWS or Google cloud, spin up some AI services and try it out

I was doing some work as far back as 2018 testing some FR software

This shit knocked my socks off

It was able to identify me 'as is'

So then I put on my sunglasses

No problem

So then I put on a ball cap

Again, it was able to identify me...with sunglasses and a ball cap on

The claim was it could do same even if I grew a mustache and beard

Mind you this was 2018, so there's been 2 years of improvement which with software is like a millennium of advancement in any other tech



I also whipped my dick out and it incorrectly showed Terry_Schiavo Terry_Schiavo so there is some work left to do, but mind blowing nonetheless

If I'm "protesting", sure.
This is an interesting point

AI is getting pretty good with 'feeling' sentiment

Maybe the 'record' button is hit only when behavior is detected to be Burn, Loot and Murder

Still extends a lot of trust to those who pull the levers, but it could be a decent meeting in the middle

WANTS,,, :roll:

Portland enacts nation's most stringent facial recognition ban, barring public, some private use

Clearly enacted in Portland by conservatives going apeshit in the first place.

But you do have a point🤣
Just remember, what's good for the goose is good for the gander. The sword cuts BOTH ways.

Do you WANT the government to be able to identify you and track your movement?
They already are.

If I'm "protesting", sure.
No, you don't. And if you do, you're an ignorant fool. When I was younger and full of piss and vinegar I used to defend the "Patriot Act". I used to say "I don't have to worry because I'm a law-abiding citizen and I have nothing to hide. And then, over the next 10 years I grew up and wised up.

I'm against it but it's unavoidable

It's the same reasoning that people are arguing FOR Socialism/Communism. It all looks great on paper, until it's used against you. Those in power will never willingly give up their power.

Yes, this ^^^

But again, see my first reply above. What's good for the goose...

says the greatest question ducker i've ever seen on labusas!!!
I got nothing on 00greenzx12RRRRR

Still can't tell me what Trump did as far China that was so great, aside from sucking President Xi off, and apparently it's really obvious to everyone but me. Dumb question I guess.

And now he likes the government to use facial recognition monitoring.

I'm starting to think he's not really a conservative...

Your knee-high black nylon socks and white sandals were a dead giveaway. :up::up:

I'm a bit conflicted on this one.
I want facial recognition enabled for chasing terroristas and pedos.
But not really for anything else.

I have not clicked the article or looked into what's going on with FC, so my opinion matters as much as an onion does in this conversationion.

LS, can the software find you if you in a crowd if you let it scan a pic of you from when you were a kid or teenager, but nothing from the last seventy years you have been alive?

Good question

I'm not aware of how it performs on time sensitivity

Or if it even matters

When you swiped your credit card to pay for your dildos and lube yesterday, the camera behind the counter can make the association with your payment, so I imagine 'it' is always up to date

IF the US feds really want to know about your activities, they can track your ass photogenically (smile when you look up), with IR, and audibly (pick out your phone conversations from all others) from space, at least since the late 70's when I worked as an engineer for military / defense contractors.

None of your fucking business...
I'm struggling with how changed this place is now. Members seem to have done a total about face in the last few years and are no longer the anti-establishment freedom loving independent spirits they used to be.

Now these same are crying out for a police state with facial recognition because they are frightened by 'the blacks'. Dirty Pete will be spinning in his offal bucket.

Of course Schiavo will still be ok as i think those facial recognition cameras don't work on people who's faces are covered by quarts of angry cum...

my face is recorded 8 hrs a day 5 days a week and is public record.
Some asshole in Sandy eggo has to review my driving footage daily...lol
Ask them how many times theyve seen the bird I flip. Also those rentacops asking to see my ID... I politely refuse and it drives them nuts. They cannot deny me access either so its even funnier. I do more to infuriate the man than any of those BLM infidels.

You're not struggling with anything, you're trolling

Unless you're really thick enough to conflate anti-establishment freedom loving independent spirits with Burn Loot and Murder
