NYC not happy with its first on-road facial recognition tech trial

New York City played host to the state’s first attempt at using facial recognition camera trials on its bridges and tunnels, but the trial didn’t go quite according to plan.

In fact, it failed miserably. The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that it had obtained a Metropolitan Transportation Authority email that declared the technology didn’t identify a single person driving on the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge. Per the email, no face was identifiable within “acceptable parameters.”
