It is coming. I have warned you long ago. This is all about behavior modification. After getting used to social distancing and hating other fellow humans, taking shots after shots of unknown substances that are good for nothing but inject transmitters and modifiers in your body, the next step will be face recognition. Read the article below by Forbes Magazine and listen to the tone. See how using “safety, security, potential risks to citizens, protocol violations, secure use of ride-sharing apps” and other fearmongering strategies, they try to hide their thirst for control behind the public good and safety. In my book “AGENDA 2030; An Imminent Danger: They Are Coming For Your Food & Meat” I thoroughly explained this tactic.
At the end of this funny article by Forbes Magazine, one of the reasons to justify this technology is preventing crimes by identifying criminals which sounds pathetic. They lower the law standards and release criminals in the streets then need face recognition technology to identify criminals? No my friend. Criminals are you and me; the citizens.
The Chinese are coming folks.
Throughout the pandemic, many people, working remotely for the first time, left their urban homes in exchange for more space in the residential areas. Combined with restaurant closures and a sharp decline in in-person shopping, once-vibrant cities abruptly came to a halt. Now that vaccination rates are trending upwards, many states have lifted Covid restrictions. That means people are returning to city living — and they’re doing so with higher expectations for living conditions and safety standards.
This lays the groundwork for the continued development of smart cities. Smart cities are created when a municipality deploys digital solutions to deliver real-time information to government and management services so that they can operate more efficiently. Whether that means allowing cities to promise safe automotive and pedestrian travel, streamlining public transportation, operating high-tech buildings, architecture and maintenance or innovating the next generation of urban planning, smart cities are a valuable investment in the future.
When deployed correctly, facial recognition technology can help accelerate this process. Cameras can capture vast amounts of data, which can be quickly analyzed to detect potential risks to citizens’ daily lives. Should cities decide to adopt facial recognition technology, here are a few ways to use it most effectively.
1. Safer Shopping Experiences
In retail environments, companies can use facial recognition technology to notify employees of protocol violations and deter crimes like pickpocketing and assault. Leaders may also choose to use facial recognition for transactions, which means sensitive information like credit card data cannot be stolen.
2. Search and Rescue
City officials that adopt facial recognition technology should consider using it in crisis situations to help first responders locate missing persons. Since facial recognition can operate in even the most unfavorable lighting and angles, it can track those who have gone missing or been kidnapped by quickly detecting and reporting on locations in real time.
3. Safer Ride-Sharing
In some cases, it may be helpful to deploy facial recognition technology to promote the secure use of ride-sharing apps and help citizens avoid potentially dangerous situations.
4. Help for Vulnerable Citizens
In a more granular medical application, patients with Alzheimer’s can, with the consent of their guardian, have their information uploaded into secure databases. If they happen to wander or get lost, they can easily be identified and brought back safely to their homes. The technology can also be used in the fight against addiction — those who have struggled with substance abuse issues or have left rehabilitation facilities can receive faster assistance if needed, as first responders will have a better understanding of the situation upon arrival.
For all its benefits, facial recognition technology has received its share of criticism. That’s why it’s important to choose the right system. Testing conducted by the Department of Homeland Security found that the top facial recognition security systems were able to identify individuals with complete accuracy about 100% of the time. With face masks on, the success rate is up to 96%.
City leaders should seek out sophisticated systems that still identify individuals even when installed at acute angles and under tough lighting conditions. It’s also important to consider crime and where facial recognition would be most helpful. For local economies that depend on nightlife, for example, facial recognition might be able to provide the additional security necessary to deter criminals and ensure an enjoyable evening. And in high-traffic areas, facial recognition can help detect and alleviate traffic pain points, improving mobility and access to municipal areas.
When deployed correctly and used to its highest potential, facial recognition technology can help facilitate safe interactions and support a flourishing economy.
