New Facial-Recognition Technology Can Accurately Identify People Wearing Masks (

New facial-recognition algorithms can now identify airline passengers wearing face masks as much as 96% of the time, according to a new DHS report.


To be honest, I’m not exactly crazy over this. The ethical issues of widespread facial recognition technology were beginning to be recognized in recent years, like its adoption by totalitarian regimes and its serious privacy concerns. A silver lining to this horrible pandemic was a seeming counter to the spread of face-tracking technology. Yet, the delay in its adoption that could’ve been used to consider its legal, ethical, and social consequences seems to have been treated as an obstacle instead of an opportunity.
