    IBM quits facial recognition

    well that's retarded

    Watson can be used for military purposes, AI in general has been used for decades by the Pentagon to calculate strategic military objectives

    Facial recognition is only one application of neural network based AI. what about OpenAI GPT-3 which has 175 billion parameters for language modeling and can be weaponized for propaganda and 'fake news'?

    with all tech - once the cat is out of the bag, the genie out of the bottle there's no putting it back

    "banning facial recognition" is every bit as nonsensical as "banning knives"

    for one thing knives can be useful and for another they cannot be 'banned'

    so "banning knives" won't work but demilitarizing the police - not allowing police to use specific kinds of 'knives' - might work better

    which shouldn't prevent IBM doing research into the technology

    So afraid of how their "brand" will look in the public's eye.
