this article stands out over some of the others mentioning IPVM - as they use IPVM research and insights as the basis for the story vs most of the others who mention lots of players and assemble quotes from each - because, journalism.

also, this article closes with a great karate chop quote from John referencing how much Miami got hosed overpaid for their crap solution: "That's a hell of a markup."

7/16/2020 The Intercept - Homeland Security Worries COVID-19 Masks Are Breaking Facial Recognition, Leaked Document Shows

In the past few months, companies around the world have scrambled to adapt their systems to facial coverings, with a few claiming that they can identify masked faces. So far, there is little evidence to support these claims. Some companies appear to have updated their algorithms by photoshopping masks onto images from existing datasets, which could lead to significant errors. To use facial recognition to identify individuals on the street, “it would be best to have lots of real life examples showing the many ways people wear masks and the different angles they get captured,” Charles Rollet, an analyst with IPVM, an independent group that tracks surveillance technology, told The Intercept. Without such images, he added, “There’s a risk of a substantially higher false positive rate, which, in a law enforcement setting, could lead to wrongful arrests or worse.” IPVM tested four facial recognition systems in February and found that their performance was drastically reduced with masked faces.

"Officials at IPVM" is an odd way of saying it. Why not say "researchers" or "investigators"? Does Military Times default to "officials"?

11/12/2020 Daily Beast: Amazon Partner in China is Making Facial Recognition Tech to Track Uyghurs, IPVM cited:

In 2016 and 2017, Dahua and another Chinese firm, Hikvision, secured contracts worth about $1.2 billion offered by the Chinese government to set up surveillance systems in “smart cities” and “safe cities” in Xinjiang. Dahua is in charge of six of the 11 projects, including one in Yarkant County, where more than 100 Uyghurs and Han-Chinese people were killed during riots in July 2014.
