High tech vs. privacy

Published by Rex on

Nowadays technology is highly involved in our daily lives. Smartphones, internet, and high tech gadgets bring comfort while make us question our privacy and who benefits from it. It’s also a known fact that governments of countries such as the U.S., China, and the UK use facial-recognition technology to prevent crime and terrorist attacks. Among them, China is the biggest exporter of such technology while Huawei is a far leading provider of surveillance and facial-recognition technologies.

WIRED published an article outlining that facial-recognition cameras are the tiniest personal data matter. The article mentions about personalized walking style, hearth beating speed/style, scent, and microbial cells are very unique personal specifications as finger prints. Therefore, facial-recognition technologies may not be the most serious personal data detection tools.

Technology could be as dangerous as it can be useful, practical, and cool in practice.
