Face and object recognition technology in public spaces is based on the assumption that we are all potential criminals. We are therefore recorded when moving around and meeting, our actions are analysed, and our behaviour is predicted. The total loss of anonymity represents a certain loss of our freedom – the awareness that we are under constant surveillance drastically changes our decisions.
