L’évolution des capacités de reconnaissance faciale ouvre aujourd’hui de nouvelles possibilités et en particulier pour le domaine de la surveillance. C’est donc une aubaine pour le FBI et les organismes similaires des autres Etats qui peuvent simplement profiter du flux d’images issues des réseaux sociaux pour créer des profils complets de personnes

Continued development of facial recognition databases is currently the first priority of the American intelligence and law enforcement agencies. The reason is that these databases can greatly help in their investigations as it would become easier for them to obtain full identities of suspects simply by matching pictures.However, the new report from Georgetown University law school’s Center for Privacy and Technology has revealed that the FBI and other law enforcement agencies’ scope of facial recognition databases is quite extensive. The 150-page report states that nearly half of the American adults are already part of their database while it remains unclear to what extent the biometrics and facial recognition information would be used by the authorities.
