The New York Times reports a review of a facial-recognition program for law enforcement in Pinellas County, Florida, has revealed privacy concerns related to the technology's use. According to the review, the biometric information being collected and stored yields few leads and often requires clear pictures to generate them. The program is also alleged to lack oversight, while the use of its records potentially violates due process. Meanwhile, CNET reports on the potential growth of facial recognition into many areas of society based on exhibits at last week's Consumer Electronics Show. Also, The Washington Post Editorial Board took a stance against U.S. Customs and Border Protection's new DNA-collection program. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
