I see where you come from and I can relate to your standpoint.

A common analogy would be cars. They can be used for evil. But no sane mind would advocate for prohibiting cars because of that.

Because benign usage of cars staggeringly outweighs malign ones.

My personal view is that face recognition technology does not share the same balance.

It's not scifi, it's happening. Face recognition is being used to crack down on innocent people, at the heart of unprecedented oppression engines.

Yes, every technologie can be used for the evil, but it can also save lifes.

Face recognition is also used to track thiefs. But yeah, as citizen we have to be aware about how this kind of stuff is used.
