Facial recognition data from leaked social media sites could lead to private blacklists
Forbes reports on a huge worldwide facial recognition project sponsored by Israeli security and hiring ex-spies.
The project would use Facebook and other data taken from social media companies by efforts like Cambridge.
Governments could use the information to build blacklists to keep out “terrorists” and private companies could develop and sell such secret blacklists.
EFF tweeted the story today.
