If facial recognition ever gets really good, who will own our faces?

But should a company need your permission before scanning your face? I have been thinking lately of the minister and novelist Frederick Buechner, who recounts once in a book that, in the middle of his morning routine, bleary-eyed and sleep-drunk, he sometimes looks up from the sink and into the mirror.“What bothers me is simply the everlasting sameness of my face,” he writes.

I also wondered how good facial-recognition software actually is.

Have algorithms as good as the Facebook AI team’s debuted in the wild? Even more intriguing was the sticking part of the negotiations.

As they walked out, the press promptly rushed in—perhaps because the failure of negotiations about digital privacy sounds foreboding and science-fictional.

Reading some of the coverage, I wondered how much the talks really meant.

(It’s this type of software that powers “smart billboards,” like the German video screen that only shows a beer ad when women walk by.)Other types of facial recognition have more serious implications.

Some software uses facial recognition for verification purposes, activating a laptop or phone only when the camera sees an approved visage.The first is the most benign: It’s called face detectionand it’s the software in phone cameras that says, “Hey, here’s a face,” then (often) auto-focuses the lens on it.The second is facial characterization, which discerns the demographics of a face: It sees not a generic human but a white male in his early thirties.Almost everything that represents me online is ultimately a jumble of numbers and letters, and nearly all of it—with some cost or sacrifice—can be changed. It’s prohibitively expensive to change them beyond recognition, if it’s even possible. Department of Commerce held talks about how and whether facial-recognition technology should be regulated.Even victims of fraud or domestic violence can apply to the government for a new social-security number. Facial recognition and other biometrics bind data about us to us like nothing else. The talks, officially called the “privacy multi-stakeholder process,” were convened by the National Telecommunications and Information Association (NTIA), the government agency that advises the president on technology policy.But the gravest of all is when facial recognition is used to identify an unknown person—when a database connects a stranger’s face to a name.
