Response from UK Home Office to my letter about Police testing of #FacialRecognition in public
I asked how they could justify the tests given little public knowledge or support and no public scrutiny of either testing or how the technology actually works.
I also asked the legal basis for this test especially around GDPR which needs active consent to be given.
They seem to think this is popular, scrutinised and perfectly legal although no mention of GDPR. Human rights act though?!
