1/4🛑The @Europarl_EN must BAN #EmotionRecognition & #AI polygraphs in the #AIAct.

'Emotion recognition' technologies are built on a chilling history of racism.

Along with biometric categorisation, these segregationist systems are the hidden face of #BiometricMassSurveillance. Mass surveillance of people...
2/4 MEPs need to prohibit systems from detecting or inferring emotion on the basic data about our appearance or behaviour.

🙅🏾‍♀️These systems are based on racist pseudo-science & should not be allowed.

🛂‘deceptive’ about their immigration claim
🧑‍💼good employees
💸suitable consumers
📚good students
🤔likely to be violent & more.

This tech necessitates constant surveillance to make intrusive & arbitrary judgments about us

NEW: Criminal Intel Files Show Facial Recognition, Warrantless Surveillance in Minnesota
A little-known multi-agency drug war group runs thousands of facial recognition scans and other surveillance operations… Documents show capabilities of North Central HIDTA Investiga
We found over 37,000 requests for support, connecting at least 233 law enforcement organizations in MN and beyond. Documents obtained via a series of public records requests from the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) provide rare insight into police intelligence gathering.
Many drug and other task forces as well as more routine law enforcement operations within the region receive intelligence from investigators within the Criminal Intelligence Division (CID) and Criminal Information Sharing and Analysis (CISA) units.

You'll love #BuildBackBetter

Who could say no to that? Who wouldn't want it "better"?


Our international Great Leaders have been showing and paving the way since over a year already. After all, is there a better opportunity than this #Covid19 'pandemy' to tackle it?


The (in)famous @wef is of course pushing for it.

Can we have one day without some new horrible discriminatory rights-abusing Government proposal?
The Government is intent on wrecking privacy rights and monitoring us.
Almost 2 years ago we won the world's first legal challenge against police use of live #FacialRecognition tech in public.

But South Wales Police - who we beat - has used it since, and is even trialling facial rec smartphone apps so officers can use it out and about

1/15 OSINT: Open Source Intelligence investigation & the use of facial recognition. Trigger to the investigation: ➡️ Russian propaganda Military video posted on Telegram by what seems to be a Chechen Muslim fighter. #ukraine #islamicfighters #chechen #osint #Telegram #facialrec Image
Note the V identification on the tank that confirms this is the Russian military (So far, V, O and Z markings have been seen) . Note what could be a folded Red Beret which may confirm he is part of a special unit. 2/15 Image
Geolocating the vid is possible, long hours of work needed, we can start by trying to ID who this individual is. Using US and Russian facial recognition software brings various results, as well as which has good facial recognition capabilities. 3/15

IFF advocates for your constitutional rights in a digital India. Every month, here's what we do: Release a transparency report & increase our accountability to the IFF community.

In Sept '21, we filed 26 RTI requests + 3 First Appeals. Highlights in 🧵 👇🏽…
The RTI Act is an important legal tool that helps us ask for transparency and accountability from the authorities. We use it to extract information about various ongoing policies and projects. On our radar this month: #facialrecognition, #netneutrality, #censorship & #freespeech.
Did you know?

❗️The Govt. of Assam plans to install AI based facial recognition attendance system across 48000 govt. schools.

❗️The Ministry of Law & Justice plans to link your Voter ID with Aadhaar, incorrectly assuming that this passes the #Puttaswamy proportionality tests.

THREAD: I'll be following along with the House Judiciary Committee hearing on #facialrecognition today:…

Will be on the lookout for lawmakers parroting talking points fed to them by tech industry lobbyists and law enforcement shills. #BanFacialRecognition
Only a few minutes into the hearing and we've already heard a ton of excuses for why lawmakers aren't just moving quickly to ban this technology. The language they're using around "oversight" & "regulatory frameworks" fed to them directly from tech lobbyists opposing moratorium
Good to hear @RepJerryNadler acknowledge the harm of private use of facial recognition as well as government / law enforcement use. @fightfortheftr supports a ban on the vast majority of private use of facial recognition:…
