Technology and Privacy

How would you like to replace hard-to-remember passwords with just your own smiling face? It's possible right now thanks to technology. Facial recognition software is what makes it possible. But that's not all it makes possible. The state of Ohio came under fire recently for creating a system that lets police use the technology in their work.
