Accused of theft by a facial recognition software, he claims $ 1 billion to Apple

last November, an american student by the name of Ousmane Bah has been stopped wrongly at his home to flight in several Apple Store (New Jersey, Delaware, Manhattan and Boston). The origin of this arrest: the facial recognition technology that team stores, which had identified him as the thief. On Monday, the student has filed a complaint against the giant, claiming $ 1 billion. He believes that the facial recognition software is wrong because their personal information have been associated, by mistake, in the face of the thief. According to him, this information would have been obtained by means of his driving licence, provisional that he had lost and that would have been found by the real thief. On it was his name, his address, and other personal information, but it did not have a photo. Ousmane Bah think that the real thief has been used as an id in the Apple Store.

The student new yorker has also stated in his complaint that the photo in the arrest warrant does not look like and that the theft in the Apple Store in Boston took place on the day when he was at his prom in a school in New York. The products stolen that day represent a value of $ 1200 dollars. In addition, an inspector in charge of the case concluded that the suspect "was nothing like" Ousmane Bah after watching a sequence of surveillance of the store in Manhattan. The charges against him have been dropped in all States, except New Jersey, where the case is still pending.

Find the thieves

facial recognition is used by Apple to find the people suspected of theft, but consumers are not necessarily aware. The complaint alleged that "Apple's use of facial recognition software in its stores in order to find individuals suspected of theft is the type of surveillance Orwellian [in reference to George Orwell, author of the novel 1984 ]that consumers are worried about, especially since we can safely assume that the majority of consumers are not aware that their faces are being analyzed in secret". The flights in the Apple Store are common. The tapes of video surveillance may help to identify the thieves. A young 18-year-old has been sentenced to four months in prison last December for stealing an iPad during the looting of the Apple Store in Bordeaux on the 8th of December, in the margins of the mobilization of the "yellow vests". Regarding the present case, Apple has not made any declaration. It is the same for the security firm Security Industry Specialists, which is cited as a defender. It deals with security in some stores of the giant. It is unclear, however, who has developed the facial recognition software, which has contributed to the arrest of Ousmane Bah.
