(1) @NYPDONeill is in the @nytimes today, defending the #NYPD’s #FacialRecognition, but his defense left us with more questions than answers. S.T.O.P. and other advocates have challenged the #NYPD’s facial recognition dragnet. #NYC needs reforms, not PR. nytimes.com/2019/06/09/opi…
(2) The truth is that the #NYPD’s #FacialRecognition system is biased and broken. Their database will return more than 200 possible “matches” for every single photo. Meaning that AT BEST it is wrong 99.5% of the time. All too often, NONE of the “matches” will be the real suspect.
(3) #FacialRecognition can be a powerful tool, but only when used correctly. Per @GeorgetownCPT, #NYPD artists #Photoshop images before testing them, altering the faces and copy/pasting #celebrity photos. This isn’t #ForensicScience; it’s an art project. law.georgetown.edu/privacy-techno…

@lirivera @BostonGlobe #JunotDiaz was targeted for a takedown by 3 female fiction writers: #ZinziClemmons #CarmenMMachado #MonicaByrne. All: Read #apologizetoJunot & my thread (threadreaderapp.com/thread/1042140…). @forjustice2018 - audio of JD's respectful interaction w/ Machado who lied. #fauxfeminism #MeToofail
@lirivera @BostonGlobe @forjustice2018 Others (like bitter writer ex-gfs) jumped in like @realalisavaldes ("kiss-n-teller" he briefly dated 22 yrs ago, who blogged in 2008 to brag abt sleeping w him while on journalist duty!). And @lirivera (sensitive writer he had lunch w 1x). No evidence #JunotDiaz harassed women.
@lirivera @BostonGlobe @forjustice2018 @RealAlisaValdes Alisa Rivera: Your points are simply ur biased assumptions as a comm prof & former aspiring fiction writer who accused #JunotDiaz of sexually harassing & bullying u 15 yrs ago on a lunch date. U met him 1 time. He didn't tell u what u wanted to hear & tried to make up. U cried.
