Facebook to use Met Police videos to recognise shooters


Facebook will be given access to footage from body cams worn by the Specialist Firearms Command officers during their training to train its algorithms to recognise videos of real-life shootings. 


Special camera technology for the purpose of Facebook will be given to the Metropolitan Police's Specialist Firearms Command and the camera technology will capture the videos whilst they do their training.

This comes after Facebook was heavily criticised and attacked for failing to stop copies of the videos of the tragic Christchurch mosque shootings from being shared on its platform.

This was Facebook's statement, "We did not have enough content depicting first-person footage of violent events to effectively train our machine learning technology." 


The Metropolitan Police said it was 'happy to help' develop their technology. 

This technology will gain videos of the firearm officers from training some instructors dressed up as terrorists to then machine learn it to automatically take down live streaming of terrorist attacks.

do you think it will work?

It'd be interesting to see this actually work. It's Facebook, so I think it actually will work. I also like the idea and the technique.

I think it will work, but it is Facebook. So many privacy concerns. What else would they do with this video?

good question, obviously it'll need to be stored, but apart from that, I don't think they have much use for it.
