Activists push to ban facial recognition technology at concerts
Activists push to ban facial recognition technology at concerts Activists push to ban facial recognition technology at concertsGoing concern I stood in a facial recognition, startup called blink identity statement. The company said the software could allow concert launch a campaign at all music venues in festivals of privacy and discrimination issues. The Privacy campaign is getting support from major musician guitarist Tom Morello of the Bands Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave tweeted. I don’t want big brother at my shows targeting fans for harassment, deportation or arrest. Patterson joins us. Now he’s a senior producer. Can you explain how this facial recognition technology actually work where you and I might see if a swiecie nose and ears and eyes a computer, artificial intelligence sees your unique face, also create a unique face print when the AI analyzes it so this can be stored, like Your iPhone locally on the device – and it’s not shared in the cloud in the case of Ticketmaster in other companies, that data is stored in the cloud, which means they can do quite a bit with it. It sounds a little scary. Getting your thumb was the height of sophistication to get in your phone. Now, almost everyone uses facial recognition to get into your mobile device. Now that data is processed, does it translate your face print into a unique key but then unlocks the device when it’s stored in the cloud or other places? This data can translate again into a unique key but be used to track you wherever gold, because it doesn’t just associate your image with a ticket. It dissociates your image with all kinds of other data that marketers use to track you across the web, with 60,000 people worth Ortiz, are used, the facial recognition and it’s slightly different way. If you look out at a crowd of 60,000 people before an machine High volumes of data, that’s right in a computers, wheelhouse individuals and then tracked them at events like say, protest in Hong Kong are the potential issues they’re talking about specifically so unique data is also Uniquely valuable with think of it like oil, this is a metaphor. That’S been used for ever because it’s pretty common. Soy oil in high volume or high as incredible value because it can be controlled and sold. Data is the exact same thing. Individual value because chat with the dataset of millions of other people, you can recognize patterns and again those patterns can be used for things other than just letting you walk into a concert. It is convenient for our privacy, so we can board an airline using and Delta’s case just are faced, but again that trade-off comes with some privacy turn and we’re not really sure what the value of that data is at high scale other than exceptionally valuable. Yeah, a number of different companies use this day that we should say with Ticketmaster and Live Nation. They have such a unique grasp on the music industry that, when they employ things like facial recognition data, when I say unique grass, I mean their kind of the only provider for large venues and large-scale concerts emission data has value. It said it has even more value when, coupled with a unique asset like the ability to put on, shows always exploring new ways to enhance The Fan Experience and while we do not currently have plans to deploy facial recognition. Technology at our clients, venues rest assured. Any future consideration would be strictly opt-in, always giving fans the statues. I wondered about this Ticketmaster images from Facebook and other social media that we don’t even realize they have access to already. Even if we don’t opt-in is from the Social Web, so according to Norton Antivirus, more than half of the u.s. population is already in a facial recognition database, and that statement is that one of my favorites, so that doesn’t mean that they can’t change their mind in The future – and they said nothing about the sale of that data. In fact, if I were Ticketmaster I would say: hey look. We have a valuable property. In addition to selling the tickets, we can also say data associated with the tickets that we given to for convenience. I’M curious you’re, the expert: would you give your face to get into a concert more quickly, Facebook products, and he said that I’m happily give my data over to clear. So I don’t have to wait in line at the airport, so it’s always a balance between privacy and convenience. Activists and musicians calling on Ticketmaster and Live Nation to ban facial recognition technology at all concert venues and music festivals. CNET senior producer Dan Patterson joined CBSN to discuss the issue.
