Wonderful to hear the dystopian future of facial rec being used on protestors in the USA /s


Thankfully Amazon said they’re not letting the police use their facial recognition technology for a WHOLE YEAR (or until the current protests fade away anyway)! The fabled ethical capitalism everyone’s talking about uh
