along the same lines Josephine Starrs and Leon Cmielewski recently make a

stop themselves being surveyed remotely in public spaces with face
recognition software, so they can just go about thier daily lives without
being tracked by govenment agencies and coprorations..

i've seen automatic video recognition software. the system could be used to nominate an object (say a person) and could then track that person within the video image. the immediate object was for sociological research. but there was a hope that it would be developed to automatically recognise faces in crowds. the aim was for 'security' (soccer hooligans). scarey.
