Submission + - London Riots + Facial Recognition Technology->

nonprofiteer writes: A bunch of vigilantes are organizing a Google Group dedicated to using recently revealed facial recognition tools (http://yro.slashdot.org/story/11/08/01/1533210/How-Face-Recognition-Can-Uncover-SSNs) to identify looters in the London riots. While Vancouver discussed doing something similar after the Stanley Cup riots, it never actually moved forward on it. Ring of Steel London, though, is far more likely to incorporate FRT into its investigative work.
