CCTV cameras are everywhere but I usually just ignore them. I always thought the video would only be used if something went wrong.
This week I learned that some shops are testing new technology that uses facial detection to check if we might steal something. It compares the face of everyone who enters a shop to images of known shoplifters. If someone is recognised, it tells staff.
This makes me uncomfortable. If my face is being analysed, I'd like to know about it. Wouldn't you?
