id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> At Konami's headquarters in Las Vegas, its facial recognition powered cameras tracked me around the room.

Alfred Ng / CNET This story is part of CES 2020, our complete coverage of the showroom floor and the hottest new tech gadgets around. Konami Gaming, a slot machine maker, wants to weave facial recognition into its one-armed bandits. During a visit to its Las Vegas headquarters to hear more about its plans, I quickly discovered what the world would be like if facial recognition is everywhere. 

"Hello, Alfred," said a measured, robotic voice, 메리트카지노 startling me. It came from a kiosk called "Biometrics Welcome Console" positioned right next to the door of the conference room where my meeting was held. The kiosk knew who I was because Konami had set up a profile for me, using a public photo from my CNET bio without telling me. The facial recognition tagged me before I'd even said hello to the Konami team members in the room

They captured our images so many times that the kiosk kept greeting us long after the meeting started.

But consumer advocates worry it'll have a chilling effect on our private liv

Over the last decade, anything you can think of -- toothbrushes, 우리카지노 televisions, cars, refrigerators and even beds -- has been connected to the internet. Within the next 10 years, facial recognition companies hope to do the same with their technology. CES 2020, where many of these companies showed their wares, was a glimpse into what the future of surveillance could look like. The annual tech conference was a prime spot to help make the biometric service mainst

Just as connecting a television to the internet was a fairly new concept in 2011, a world filled with facial recognition is essentially uncharted territory now. That might change fast. By 2019, analysts found that you couldn't buy a new TV without an internet connection. Facial recognition companies want that sort of acceptance for their tech

Throughout the interview, Soukup referred to our faces as "QR codes," reducing one of our most intimate, personal features to a machine-

Soukup said Konami doesn't have privacy officers who work on facial recognition development at its headquarters. Instead, the company has compliance officers, whose job is to make sure its technology meets the minimum standards of privacy laws like the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation, which includes provisions covering biome

Yale Goldberg, 우리카지노 PopID's vice president of strategy and business development, says the company's facial recognition is in more than 100 locations that ring up more than 1,500

"We did not mean to offend the team or make light of important values," a Konami spokeswoman said. "We will ensure that the data associated with Wednesday's visit is purged from our internal system and that of our biometric technology partner."
