Live facial recognition is tracking kids suspected of being criminals

In Buenos Aires, the first known system of its kind is hunting down minors who appear in a national database of alleged offenders.

Buenos Aires first began trialing live facial recognition on April 24, 2019. Implemented without any public consultation, the system sparked immediate resistance. In October, a national civil rights organization filed a lawsuit to challenge it. In response, the government drafted a new bill—now going through legislative processes—that would legalize facial recognition in public spaces.
