FBI To Improve Spying On Public With New Facial Recognition System
FBI has always been keeping an eye on the public. Wherever you go they’re watching you. Specially on those people who spends too much time online. Recently they’ve also managed to cut down lots of cyber threats by rolling out many strict laws and rules. And now they are planning to continue spying on the public and improve it with an innovative facial recognition system.
According to the reports from the New Scientist, FBI is already preparing to launch this new system called Next Generation Identification (NGI) program by the year 2014, spending about $1 billion US dollars to build it, just to spy on people of interest, such as those people with criminal records and more. The NGI system will be using biometric data methods such as DNA analysis, iris scans and voice identification to spot those people who has a criminal history and track them everywhere they go, with a little help of public cameras.
This new approach will be a good way to keep track of suspects and see what they’re doing. At the same time it also affects a person’s privacy. Although the FBI claims this new system doesn’t break any privacy rules in the US. So, what do you think about this new spy system of the FBI? Should you be worried about it?
