Big Brother Watch Team / June 11, 2020

PimEyes, the (free) facial recognition tool that allows people to search for pictures of themselves and others is enabling state surveillance, commercial monitoring and even stalking on a scale previously unimaginable.

Silkie Carlo, director of Big Brother Watch said: “To see this powerful surveillance tech marketed to individuals is chilling. It’s ripe for stalking and puts women and children at unprecedented risk.”

Facial recognition technology must be regulated now.
