ICO opens investigation into use of facial recognition in King's Cross theguardian.com/technology/201…
“Scanning people’s faces as they lawfully go about their daily lives in order to identify them is a potential threat to privacy that should concern us all,” Denham (@iconews) said. “That is especially the case if it is done without people’s knowledge or understanding.”
@ICOnews "Last month the House of Commons science and technology committee suggested authorities cease trials of such technology until a legal framework was established."

(1/7) What roadmap should #fintech take in the future? Huang Qifan, academic advisor of CF40 and Vice-Chairman of CCIEE shared his insights on P2P and Internet finance on CF40 Yichun Forum. mp.weixin.qq.com/s/WZ2YQxwUoQEG…
(2/7) Huang said “In recent years, under the cover of internet finance, #P2P has successfully attracted savings from netizens with de facto high-interest loans. Repay the debt with new lending through cash pooling has resulted in a host of Ponzi schemes under the internet system.
(3/7) Either #TechFin or #FinTech doesn't and won’t overthrow fundamental principles of traditional finance and financial security. In this regard, we should not only exert the #digital platform to the utmost, but also stick to principles and ideology of modern finance.

An often misunderstood element of the next generation of credential based digital #identity systems is that they are no longer reliant on any single issuer being trustworthy. 1/n
Rather, they rely the combination of many issuers, and many #verifiableclaims in order to create a reliable web of trust. As with any network, this ability to establish trust between peers scales exponentially with the relationships inside it. 2/n
This network effect fundamentally shifts the power balance from centralized issuers, or federated identity managers, towards individual ID holders. The trade-off here is 1) the ease of #compliance and 2) #automation of services across contexts in an ever expanding ecosystem. 3/n

Today @CenDemTech is putting out its proposal for federal privacy legislation. You can read more here, but I wanted to share a few personal reflections: cdt.org/blog/americans… 1/12
"Privacy" is not a good word for what we're talking about anymore, but we seem stuck with it. "#BigData" "#IoT" "#AI" have changed the game, but folks too often take a narrow view of privacy. This was on full display at the FTC's discussion on #adtech: ftc.gov/system/files/d…
See Howard Beales: "There are discrimination problems out there in the world. There’s no doubt about that, but they are discrimination problems. They are not privacy problems." He's not wrong, but he's not right, if that makes any sense. 3/12

If we take into account the amount we spen don AADHAAR and the amount various irganisations are still spending and the charges for each and evey verification process at retail stage, the profit will be negative. (7/n)
Having seen that #Aadhaar is not feasible technologically or economically. We will move to Rights. I have another thread explaining how Aadhaar violates Universal Declaration of Human Rights here
(9/n)
Since, #Aadhaar involves mandatory collection of biometric and demographic data, and its centralised storage, it essentially involves the question of #Privacy . Especially in country where there are no Data protection frameworks.
