Is there some sinister implication here I'm unaware of?

For the last time, paranoidmitter, nobody gives a flying fark about your boring ass.

Work your ass off for the controllers. Or be eliminated. That's what it comes down to.

What a waste of money. No such system has ever had more true positives than false positives.

I think it's quaint that you suddenly think this is a new thing that we need to suddenly be afraid about. Facial recognition systems have been online and used en masse for years, but you didn't care Subby because nobody pointed you to an article then and told you to be outraged.

Stop that! Clearly we must panic about software that has existed since the late 1980s in the private sectors and is being used now by the Government. This means we're one step away from everyone having to walk down the streets with the mark of the beast tattoo'd on their hand, and the Illuminati ID badges taped to their forehead!

This sinister plot can only be a product of the Rand Corporation, the Reverse Vampires, and the Saucer People.

We're through the looking glass on this one.

Didn't they already have this? I recall hearing about it over 10 years ago.

It's crap like this that makes me sick. We go over this time and time again.

So far, so good - catching criminals faster and making less false arrests must be a good thing, right?

They should have said 'fewer' instead of less. Absolutely appalling what they did there. Loss of freedom is pretty bad too. But this, this is uncalled for.

Is this anything like the bullet "fingerprinting" scam?

They just stopped that nonsense in New York, but not before flushing $44million down the toilet.

So part of me thinks that something "like" this could also be used to prevent/reduce identity theft.
Guy tries to use my credit card and doesnt look like me, card gets rejected.
Home loans, TADA, etc, etc, etc.

How many open criminal cases (rape, assault, murder, robbery, fraud) have DNA, fingerprints, photos, sketches and no leads?
Purely as step one for generating leads, I have no problem with this. (mostly)

We have KNOWN that this is coming for a long time. Cameras everywhere, government, corporate and citizen. People put trillions of photos online.
FFS, GIS alone is an amusing start to a long chain of events.

As much as photos can be used to put you on the suspect list, photos can also help generate alibis.

For shame, subby, for shame. Evil, un-American neo-con.

The My Little Pony Killer: The FBI just spent a million dollars on Facebook?


They already have Facebook. If you call them up, press 2 for law enforcement matters. They'll get back to you in 48-72 hours.

I'm not joking at all. A few years ago (back in the olden days, when MySpace was the thing) I had a guy steal some computers from my company which were an interstate shipment. I posted on SlashDot (again, it was the olden days) about having full access to this PC, including all his cookies etc and how the Rancho Cucamonga (I'm not joking) police didn't seem to understand what "I can access his webcam, watch him use the internet, and I have his IP address which is connected via the ethernet port and not WiFi" meant.

An FBI Special Agent responded to the /. post I had made and when I showed him the MySpace profile full of pictures of guns, pot, coke, and license plates of all his buddies with said objects the SA laughed and said, "This should be really fun! I love it when they hand it to us!"

I'm sure they don't want to openly admit it, but I'm sure in the years since that happened the FBI has kept up with MySpace/Facebook/Twitter.

Doesnt matter if they openly admit it. The tards are, well, retarded.
If they thought, they would never take the photos in the first place, let alone post them on FB. publicly

good thing criminals don't know about gloves, masks and stolen cars.

this is what they are telling the public about. you can bet your sweet arse they have stuff they are using that you won't know about for 20 years. but you're not a hoodlum anyway so who cares.

The U.S. government benefited the most by 911 in all aspects and with this fact and mountains of other facts that have been marginalized by most as "truther" nonsense, 911 was most likely planned by the powerful in the U.S. for this benefit. This rollout by the FBI is just another example of the benefit of the federal power grab "justified" by a so called terrorist attack.

Still thinking correlation implies causation? Just because an entity benefits from an event doesn't automatically prove they initiated it. People benefit from others' misfortune all the time without causing that misfortune. A big example is how World War II boosted the economy of the United States. Not only did we not start that war, we did everything we could to stay our of it for as long as possible.

I always like it when truthers out themselves. The mental gymnastics they perform to link events to proof that the Government somehow conspired to cause or allow 9/11 to happen the way it did never ceases to amaze me, especially in the face of the overwhelming evidence from thousands of Scientists, Specialists, and Engineers, and numerous Government, and Nongovernmental agencies conducting investigations, in addition to confessions from the people who planned it.

You, on the other hand, seem to not know what a Correlation vs. Causation fallacy is.

You're not a clever pony. You're not even original by claiming this crap. All you are is the guy that everyone else points and laughs at. Look. I get it. You want to feel special and important. You want to feel like the wolf among sheeple. But the simple fact of the matter is that people do horrible things to other people for no reason than to hurt others and incite fear, and that's what happened here. There wasn't a cabal of Magic Illuminati holographic missiles. There wasn't some special, sooper-secret "nano-thermite" built into the towers 30 years before the attack so that they could be used in this matter.

No. These were 19 pissed off, inhuman monsters - mostly of the Saudi Arabian flavor - who decided to murder people in the best way they could.

The history of mans behavior is key to understanding its future.

Once a power to manipulate and control people is available (just available, thats all thats needed) man will devise a way to to separate those with access and power from those that do not. What happens next to those cast out is the string of horrors throughout history.

Go ahead and argue the "but if they did nothing wrong, they have nothing to worry about" side. I dare you.

THIS.

facial recognition systems have reached the point where they can match a single face from a pool of 1.6 million mugshots/passport photos with 92% accuracy,

That rate stinks. One out of 12 will be errors -- and looking at the actual study, that's best-case. Also from the study:

img515.imageshack.us

"Image (b) has a pitch angle that is likely fatal to automated facial recognition algorithms"

img211.imageshack.us

"Three images of one person ... All depart from defined standards: In image (a) the subject's pitch angle is slightly too high; in image (c) the yaw angle is well beyond the 5 degrees limit established in standards; in image (b) there is considerable saturation and non-uniformity of the lighting"

Yeah, good luck with that.

According to the documentaries "CSI: Miami" and "Las Vegas", they've been able to do this for years. Any grainy camera shot can be enhanced and matched with the worldwide database.
