This is from The Register, and contains a link to the core document from the ACLU:
Face recognition kit fails in Fla airport. How about fifty false positives a day?
Authorities here in New York just put in a face recognition system to monitor the line of tourists queuing up to get on the boat to the Statue of Liberty. This despite ample evidence — even before these Palm Beach findings — that face recognition is not ready for prime time.
To answer my own question: No, I don’t feel any safer. Thanks for asking.
