Facial Recognition APP.
This week we have seen a lot of cool things in the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. One of the things that we saw was an APP to recognize your face and find you on the internet in Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. The technology exists now. Thankfully Facebook and the others don’t allow this right now. What are the dangers of this technology? Let’s watch the video and see! As always, we have questions for debate after the video. Enjoy!
- What do you think of the APP in the video?
- Do you think that it should be used by the police? And by normal people?
- What are the advantages of this?
- Can you think of any special uses for this?
- Are there any dangers in this technology? What?
- Would you use this app? Why or why not?
