Technical application must abide by the law and ethical bottom line

From a technical point of view, AI+ face recognition is the development direction of Internet applications, subverting the technological application of the mobile Internet era, and is also an important foundation for the interconnection of all things and human-machine interconnection in the future 5G era. From a legal point of view, face recognition, especially AI+ face recognition, the data information acquired by the platform belongs to personal information, and is the core privacy in the privacy protection system.

Although the nature of privacy is a civil right, if the platform fully informs the user in advance of the scope, type and purpose of collecting data, it is used according to the basic principles of legality, legitimacy and necessity. Generally speaking, the platform can be disposed of by means of Internet users. User data information. However, mobile as a network payment and social platform, face recognition is like the key to open the door of the user’s home. The netizen agreement is a gentleman’s agreement. It is fine for the platform to abide by it. Once the information is leaked or improperly used, the hazard is very large. The data can be copied, and it will be doomed to remove the harm completely afterwards.

Before the implementation of the “one law, one decision” in China, most of the problems of illegal use of personal data were mainly based on “repairing the sheep.” After the implementation of the Net Security Law, legislation puts information and data security at the highest level of protection, focusing on the advance protection of information and data, and the new measures of “precautions” have minimized the risk of data leakage. Even if the data information is not infringed, there is only a big risk. For example, the “changing face” application of the “ZAO” software, the relevant authorities can also carry out the necessary supervision according to law.

“Technology is not guilty”, this sentence is a prerequisite. First, technology should comply with the law. Just a few years after the quick broadcast, P2P technology was used to spread obscenity information, which is where technology should be corrected by law. Second, technology should be controllable. Taking network information dissemination as an example, although network service providers enjoy the legal exemption from the “safe haven rules”, the website must set up reporting ports and information filtering mechanisms. If the basic information security system is not observed, the platform will need to bear the “red flag”. The legal responsibility of the rules. Third, technology must be good. Good technology development can’t be evaluated only by flow, profit, ecology and market share. Good technology should be the core technology, and innovation is the soul of technology development. We must always remember that technology itself is a double-edged sword. Only considering the technology of making money will eventually lose people’s hearts, and the platform of lack of social responsibility and moral awareness is difficult to go far.

We must admit that legislation has a certain lag and technology has gone too fast. There is also a “third force” in the solution mechanism of contradiction – moral ethics, and technological progress must be bound by morality. Applying face recognition technology to video face-changing, even as a tool to monitor school teachers and students, is itself an immoral act. The cost of changing faces is the risk of disclosure of personal information, the occurrence of violations of personality rights, the copyright of film and television works, and the rights of actors to perform. The cost of monitoring teachers and students in class is to let the teaching lose the wonderful content to attract students, let the teacher lose the authority of classroom control, make the sensitive information of minors exposed, and let the students lose their innocent nature.

Even if the Internet users agreement is written well and the legal authorization is complete, the face-changing technology and classroom monitoring should not be the application place for AI+ face recognition. The former involves personal dignity and information security, while the latter involves morality and students. Freedom, this is an important manifestation of the application of ethical and moral control technology.

The core competitiveness of the second half of the Internet lies in innovation. Only the core technology can bring real market and dividends. Face-changing and classroom monitoring, such as “fisting and embroidering legs”, especially when the platform information security technology and system guarantee are not 100% complete, it should be as soon as possible.
