The US Air Force has reportedly developed AI-powered facial recognition technology for autonomous drones, sparking concerns about targeted assassinations. The drones will be used for special operations and intelligence gathering overseas, with machine learning techniques used to identify faces. The technology may also be used for domestic search operations and rescue missions. The use of facial recognition technology by the government is controversial, with some advocates concerned about privacy violations and the potential for abuse. Despite the lack of federal regulation, there are suggestions for greater oversight and limitations on the use of the technology.
