Minimizing the possibility of the public paying for new technology vulnerabilities and paying unnecessary costs is more challenging and testing than R & D and promotion of new technology itself.

According to a recent CCTV report, currently there is a gray industry on the Internet that exploits loopholes in face recognition technology for profit. The package price of a set of face and ID photos is 2.5 yuan, and some people teach photo brushing skills online. After operation, they can cheat some mobile app's live authentication links. Related face authentication involves 58 cities, Momo, Century Jiayuan, etc Multiple applications.

The application of face recognition technology to "fly into the homes of ordinary people" has brought a lot of convenience to life, such as identity verification, face scanning and payment. In addition, it has also played an active role in the areas of missing search and rescue, security, detection and counter-terrorism. For example, Jacky Cheung ’s concert became a nightmare for fugitives, the arrest of the suspect of Peking University ’s mother in Chongqing Jiangbei Airport, and the latest case of Lao Rongzhi.

As an important application of artificial intelligence, face recognition is currently in the stage of promotion and popularization worldwide, which is a global technology development trend. In the future, application scenarios will be more extensive and deeper, which will profoundly change and affect our lives. According to reports, the Chinese computer vision face recognition market size was 15.17 billion yuan in 2018 and is expected to reach 53 billion yuan in 2021. The market size is growing rapidly.

At the same time, the public has expressed concerns about face recognition infringing privacy, leaking personal information, and even threatening the security of funds. A study found that over 70% of the people have doubts about the security capabilities of network operators and are concerned about the leakage of face information.

Will there be any information leakage in the face recognition database collected by the company? Will it endanger user safety? The security of personal information and the security of funds are the two issues that the public is most worried about. The reasons are as follows: The relevant legislation, standard policies, etc. lag significantly behind the technological development, and without the reins, the wild horses cannot be restrained. Second, there is no "standard answer" to the need to collect and use face information, such as borders. For example, when people use a software to play face-changing games, the exposed portraits of people have actually become fuller—face recognition can be associated with multiple parties' information, and more deep information can be calculated, such as ID numbers, Shopping habits, financial loans, home addresses, and even sexual orientation ...

Obviously, face recognition is a double-edged sword. It is expected that making full use of this technology to create more positive effects. At the same time, it is also worth paying attention to how to ensure that it is not in trouble and chaos. In this regard, through the formulation of laws and regulations and national standards, it is necessary to clarify the qualifications and codes of conduct of enterprises; to formulate a more comprehensive admission mechanism to prevent the abuse of face recognition technology to the greatest extent. The core point is to balance the relationship between innovation and risk, technological progress and protection of personal rights.

From the unrefundable bicycle deposit in the era of the sharing economy blowout, to the theft of funds in the early days of QR codes, to today's mixed face recognition, the rapid development of many new technologies has surpassed our expectations, and the most worrying of all Ordinary people will pay a price for it without their knowledge.

The development of new technologies must not be a waste of food, but it must be within a safe and controllable range. To a certain extent, reducing the possibility of the public paying for new technology vulnerabilities and paying unnecessary costs to the greatest extent is more challenging and testable than developing and promoting new technology itself.

The development of new technologies should be based on the public interest. Face recognition technology, please go slowly.
