NY State Using Facial Recognition Tech but Won't Say for What

The future is here and it can, at times, be a little creepy:

There is an ongoing debate about privacy concerns and smart home devices like the Amazon Echo or Google Home, but exactly how much are we giving up away from home?

True, once one is in public one has voluntarily given up privacy in most ways. They are, however, ways that we are all aware of. It is one thing to see the people who are watching you and another to not know you are being watched.

This story about New York's use of facial recognition in very public places and Gov. Andrew Cuomo's coy response when questioned about it might turn some future tech fans into Luddites.
