It is likely that San Francisco will be the first US city in which authorities will be prohibited from using face recognition technology. Regional lawmakers are already working on such a bill. The draft Stop Secret Surveillance Ordinance (or “Order to ban secret surveillance”) was proposed by City Council member Aaron Peskin. According to the document, the relevant departments will be forced to ask the permission of the city supervisory council not only for the application, but also for the acquisition of technologies that can monitor people. A similar order has already been established in several American cities. In addition, the correct use of tracking technologies is regularly checked. However, in this case, the prescription completely prohibits the use or purchase of face recognition technologies. And this despite the fact that in many countries now face recognition technologies are being tested and implemented in cities. This is done in order to track crime. In Russia, for example, systems were introduced in the Moscow metro and railway stations for the World Cup, which took place last year.
