What an amusing and refreshing naivete you display.
Your words only hold if there's no problem with large corporate entities,
such as governments or business.

No fear indeed.

| Eugene why not let this happen too quickly? Our current system of
| identifying perpetrators relies on face recognition, but done
| by extremely fallible and often panicky carbon units. I would
| think we would be much better off with machines doing the
| face recognition, voice recognition or perhaps body offgassing
| recognition instruments.

| others, simply because our face-recognition bioware is less
| effective with those of African descent than with others.
| Before you jump me or flame me, think this over. Im proposing
| a testable hypothesis. We could surely invent software that
| could identify faces more accurately than can humans, which
| would keep innocents out of prisons and get dangerous felons
| off the streets. That being the case, *why not* let this happen
| too quickly? Let it happen! It cannot happen too quickly.
| Where Im going with this is: NO FEAR. Popular catch phrase
| today. If you are not committing crimes, then no fear. You *want*
| face rec instruments everywhere. If you *are* a violent criminal,
| then yes, be afraid, be very afraid. The future may not be your
| kinda place, but for the rest of us, face rec software is your friend.
