Why Facial Recognition Is So Creepy

The accuracy rate of facial recognition depends on the data its fed. With enough good data, the accuracy rate could be almost perfect.

Facial recognition is already being implemented in US airports for security and efficiency. But there are concerns that the US government is creating a digital ID library of millions of Americans without consent. 

The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement are also using facial recognition for security reasons. But without clear protections, it could be used as a tool to violate human rights. China is also implementing facial recognition on a bigger scale by giving citizens "social scores" in hopes of helping society become better. 

Facial recognition can be used to make tasks automated, convenient, and efficient. But there needs to be regulation and protections in place.
