I tried to keep this somewhat short since I have a bad habit of writing essays on these blog posts:

  1. In law enforcement:  I think one main topic that got covered in most of the readings was using facial recognition in law enforcement. The reason this topic is super interesting to me is because it’s literally one of the most dystopian applications of AI. It is not just seen with facial recognition, but it’s even being used in decisions of who gets a longer sentence than not. 
  2. Is being recognized a good thing? I think the whole section of the John Oliver video that focused on was INSANE, I think this makes me wonder how this doesn’t already bypass federal regulations or any sort of fair use copyright, especially when multiple corporations like Facebook have requested Clearview to stand down. I was under the impression that this type of applications of AI would be illegal, and its so terrifying to know that its not.
