London cops urged to scrap use of 'biased' facial recognition at Notting Hill Carnival ... - 0 views

  •

The aim is to alert cops to people who are banned from the festival or are wanted by the police, presumably so they can take immediate action. The tech was first tested at the festival - where relations between police and revellers are often strained - last year, but it failed to identify anyone.
