Amazon Company is known for its cloud services and retail business. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ is known for making from unusual resources. The E-commerce giant recently made headlines by selling its facial recognition technology to the police.

Based on the American Civil Liberties Union, Amazon “Rekognition” facial tech has been sold to Florida police department. This tech can be used to solve future crimes easily.

Director of Rekognition software Ranju Das said “The City of Orlando is a launch partner of ours” in developer conference conducted at Seoul, South Korea. The Police department has cameras all around the city and the cameras authorised are streaming to a subscriber and police will analyse the video in real time and search for the collection of faces the police department have.

The Police Department says the “Rekognition” tech is used only as a “Pilot Problem”. On subjective to the law Technology is not currently being used under the investigate capacity and it will not be available in any public spaces at this time space.

Amazon against the critics’ comment “Our Quality of life would be much worse today if we outlawed new technology because some people could choose to abuse the technology. Imagine if customers couldn’t buy a computer because it was possible to use that computer for illegal purposes?”


Obviously, not every person feels as warm and fluffy about Amazon’s designs as, well, Amazon, however. In an open letter sent to Bezos, the ACLU recommended that the innovation is, “prepared for mishandling in the hands of governments.” specifically, the letter noticed how it “represents a grave threat to communities, including minorities and immigrants, and to the trust and regard Amazon has worked to construct.”

Regardless of whether other police offices will take after Orlando’s case stays to be seen. The U.S. isn’t the main nation to utilise facial acknowledgement along these lines, however. In China, the innovation is by and large generally utilised — most as of late to allegedly choose suspect from a stuffed 50,000 man swarm at a show.
