Subject description: CCTV cameras and facial recognition

Both the facial recognition CCTV platform and FindFace were made with the best of intentions. One was made to catch criminals, and the other was created to bring people closer together. But human nature plus the nature of state institutions paints a different picture of how this software will be used. We tend to want to use technology in a way that allows us to have control, not only over our own lives but also control over others (such as a parent installing tracking software in a child’s phone). Used correctly, it can help us keep people safe. However, in the wrong hands, technologies like FindFace and the CCTV-based facial recognition backbone in Moscow can potentially make innocent people’s lives miserable.

I believe the core of the problem is information imbalance. Which is to say, there is access to information about a lot of people to a few, but no access to that information by anyone else. Furthermore, there is no access to information about those few who control this information.

This creates a feeling of powerlessness with many, as they come to understand that with this disadvantage in information, they can easily be manipulated and controlled by those who do have access to information.

The more this feeling of powerlessness is being perpetuated by an ever increasing display of information gathering and control measurements, the more likely it becomes that these feelings culminate in a feeling of existential desperation.

And this may result in quite extreme behavior by some individuals as an attempt to reassert their position of power.

So to me, it seems, a state which exerts control over its citizens too stricly as a preventative measure, may find its methods counterproductive.
