Hacking war is on with Iran, China or NorthKorea

Concerning facial recognition, here is the study they refer to:

A 2019 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) study found that facial recognition algorithms are woefully riddled with flaws overall. Minority groups including Asians and African Americans had higher false positives in one-to-one matching. At times, these false-positives increased by a factor of up to 100 for these groups. The report also discovered gender biases, as African American females had a higher rate of false positives for one-to-many matching datasets.
