    Default Facial recognition to used on all departing flight

    From https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/18/1...biometric-exit

    It will be used for departing passengers and correlated with various data bases.

    The aim of the system is to offer “Biometric Exit,” which gives authorities as good an idea of who’s leaving the country as who’s entering it, and allows them to identify people who have overstayed their visas. Quartz notes that US authorities have traditionally relied on airline flight manifests to track who’s leaving the country.
    Since the introduction of the current system, facial recognition identified 7,000 passengers who overstayed their visas on the 15,000 flights tracked. The US Customers and Border Protection (CBP) estimates that over 600,000 people overstay their visas every year, an offense that carries a maximum penalty of a 10-year ban from entering the US.
    ....
    The current iteration of the system first entered trials in 2017 on a single flight between Atlanta and Tokyo.
    One would think that those entering the country would be of at least as much concern as are those leaving it! Suicide bombers for example should be detected upon entering and often if successful do not depart.

    What could possibly go wrong? Well, here's an example: https://www.cnet.com/news/teen-hits-...nition-arrest/

    From the article:

    [Quote] An 18-year-old New Yorker filed a $1 billion lawsuit against Apple on Monday, claiming that facial recognition software incorrectly linked him to thefts at several stores.
    Ousmane Bah was arrested by New York Police Department officers on Nov. 29 after being accused of thefts at Apple Stores in Manhattan, Boston, New Jersey and Delaware, according to his lawsuit.
    The lawsuit says the actual thief was caught stealing $1,200 worth of merchandise -- specifically Apple Pencils -- from the Boston store on May 31, 2018. The person then used a stolen ID that included Bah's name, address and other personal details, but not his photo, according to the suit. [Quote]
