FBI Facial Recognition System Operational

The FBI announced today that their billion dollar system Next Generation Identification (NGI) program is now fully operational. This new system will is meant to act as a replace to the agency’s  Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS). This new tool has a couple new features. One of which is the ability to be continually scanning for images…of you. 

This system is designed to search for for criminals via facial recognition and correlate against records in the hopes of bagging other bad guys. The mother of all big data law enforcement projects. It scans faces, it scans biometric information and correlates this data (insert voice of Tom Popeil). It is a law enforcement dream come true. This system really does creep me out the more I think about it. 

The first of two features that are included in the new system is called Rap Bank. This is a streaming capability that is set up to receive continual updates of any criminal records that are entered into the system. The second component is called the Interstate Photo System. This is that part where I start to get rather uncomfortable. This is the system that will be able to scan for pictures that are “associated with criminal identities” which is ambiguous language at best.
