Dear Friends listening to @BBCr4today this morning: Please DO NOT send images of your hands to whackadoodles who want to build a biometric database of hands!! Your biometric data belongs to you and pattern recognition is largely junk science.
Honestly I am shocked at the irresponsibility of @BBCr4today pushing as news what amounts to an advertisement for someone who wants to steal people’s biometric data in order to push junk science. It’s criminal.
I should clarify obviously not all pattern recognition is total junk (e.g., DNA, fingerprints) but much of it is (e.g., bite mark, blood splatter) and I find it hard to believe there’s any science behind hand pattern recognition.
It’s probably not worth it but I’ve already got a name for the joint @libertyhq @bbw1984 campaign against this - #HandsOff. Whaddaya say @silkiecarlo? 🤣
