Re: This needs to stop

Stereotyped nonsense, quite frankly.

Also, the issue with facial recognition isn't that contrast is an issue, it is that we KNOW it is an issue, but we persist in its development for detecting crime etc... We know it'll discriminate, but we persist. We know the tech is flawed, but the police push on with it. Why is the industry releasing this as a working technology? Because the representation of minorities is non-existent within the companies making it. Imagine, a company making facial recognition technology and has only black staff. They run their trials and find that it simply doesn't work properly on themselves. Would they go "ah, good enough"? No, the product wouldn't get out of the lab.
