Re: Surely though
The statistic that you're all getting so het up about is from this line in the report:
"Metropolitan Police’s facial recognition matches are 98% inaccurate, misidentifying 95 people at last year’s Notting Hill Carnival as criminals"
Which is clearly bollocks. It identified 95 people from a crowd of hundreds of thousands. That's not a 98% false positive rate.
Lies, damned lies, and lies from political pressure groups quoted by "journalists".
