I'm not concerned with privacy. I'm more concerned that flawed AI will start giving people life sentences for something they didn't do. It will be
really plausible...just like AI cars that can cause a fatal "accident".
your combining two similar but different issues.
AI cars that "can cause fatal accidents" is a situation that has (except IF there is a warning and/or realize that a manual override is needed ) no
check.. if it goes wonky/fails the results are as they are.
with the AI doing identification of people wanted for crimes there IS a check and balance. You have to be arrested, positively identified though more
than the AI, and you have to go to trial and are "presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law".
yes you can be miss identified and arrested.
hell that happens with the "old tech" and techniques we have today...
but so far the sytem used has been MORE ACCURATE than typical systems and even caught people in crimes where they had no name to go with face.
unless this system is used in countries without the legal protections we enjoy here in USA it is (with guidelines) promising and good
but again those wanting to do evil are gonna use whatever is effective in their plans.
your banning it for good isnt gonna stop that and (sadly) the tech is well out of the bottle.
you ARE NOT gonna ban its use (be good but especially evil) no matter what you want.
