    This story makes me think of a line uttered by Chicolini, Chico Marx's character in the Marx Brothers' 1933 movie Duck Soup:"Shhh! This is spy stuff."

    Amazon asked to stop selling facial recognition technology to police
    CNN Tech, May 24 2018 4:37 PM

    Forty-one civil rights organizations are calling on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to stop selling its facial recognition technology to the government. The technology, called Rekognition, uses artificial intelligence to identify the objects, people, scenes and more from images or videos. An Amazon executive touted public safety as a "common use case" for the technology. For example, it can be used by law enforcement to recognize and track suspects or "persons of interest" in real time. According to Amazon's website, the tool can identify up to 100 of the largest faces in an image, meaning it can pull out faces from a crowd.

    The ACLU, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Freedom Of The Press Foundation, Human Rights Watch and 37 other activist groups co-signed a letter saying the tech "is primed for abuse in the hands of governments. This product poses a grave threat to communities, including people of color and immigrants, and to the trust and respect Amazon has worked to build People should be free to walk down the street without being watched by the government. Facial recognition in American communities threatens this freedom."
