London's police chief has said critics of the force's face recognition plans are “ill-informed”.Dame Cressida Dick told an event in the UK capital that eight criminals had been caught using the controversial live facial recognition cameras.She said “inaccurate” critics should “justify to the victims of those crimes why police should not be allowed to use techߪ to catch criminals”.Cressida was speaking at the launch of a report by the Royal United Services Institute, looked at the use of data and algorithms by police in England and Wales.”If an algorithm can help identify, in our criminal intelligence systems material, a potential serial rapist or killer… then I think almost all citizens would want us to use it,” she said.Earlier this year the Met revealed plans to expand its use of face recognition.
