Advisory: Be careful of what you read on social media. The algorithms used by these platforms have no regard for Biblical truth. They target your emotions to keep you engaged on their site so their advertisers can drop more ads. These platforms exist to enrich their stockholders. Consider God’s promise to Believers in James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
The travel industry is gearing up for what could be its busiest season since the coronavirus pandemic began, and at least one U.S. airline is aiming to make things quicker and easier — one face at a time.
“So is this the future of flying?” asked ABC News transportation correspondent Gio Benitez.
“This is the future in so many ways,” replied Ranjan Goswami, Delta’s senior vice president of customer experience. “Basically, we want to make the airport experience as effortless as possible. What does that mean? Getting out of lines, not having to stop discombobulated.”
To participate in the voluntary pilot program, passengers must have TSA pre-check and be a member of Delta’s loyalty program.
When participating passengers arrive at the airport’s bag drop, TSA checkpoint or boarding gate, they will just need to lower their face mask to utilize the new technology. Their face will be recognized within seconds, and there will be no need to pull out a boarding pass or record locator.MORE: Traveling over the holidays? Experts say take advantage of vouchers and lack of change fees
Delta has previously used similar facial recognition technology for passengers to board some international flights.
And it’s not just Delta.
American Airlines started testing its own biometric screening for boarding in March, and that system is still being tested in Dallas.
“A lot of people may be wondering: ‘Wait a minute, what’s going to happen to my photo?'” Benitez asked. “‘Is Delta going to keep my information?'”
“It’s a very valid concern,” Goswami said. “First, we are not storing any photographic imagery at all. All we do is take your photo. And because you’ve uploaded your passport number as part of your Delta profile… we take that passport number and that picture. We just check it against the customs database from your passport photo.”
With Delta expecting more than 5.5 million travelers over the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, the pilot program will come at the perfect time.
“It’s actually a good congruence of circumstances that we have this technology ready,” said Byron Merritt, Delta’s vice president of experience design. “We’re going to be able to bring it to life before the holidays and hopefully make a better experience for our customers as they come back.”
This is a sight to behold. They’re already implementing the technologies, and have already established their stance on COVID. The only thing needed for satans plan to move forward is for the government to get a tyrannical grip on this technology. They’ll upload all of your data into a dossier and pair it with the biometric facial recognition technologies. Once thats done, the surveillance state will be in place. Make no mistake, their plans will follow through. I suspect that in some way we can separate before that all happens, but there is a massive need for infrastructure. It would need to be a movement across the nations. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
2020 requires individuals filing for unemployment compensation to prove their identity before receiving payments.
In an effort to prevent fraudulent claims which have plagued the online unemployment system, Texas has hired ID.me, a McLean, Virginia-based company, to authenticate users. But with a twist, biometrics data.
Since 2020, some 27 states have hired ID.me for unemployment verification, including Pennsylvania, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming.
“We are also now under contract with an additional two states. ID.me Spokesman Nicholas Michael told The Epoch Times.
“Our federal partners include the Department of Veterans Affairs and Social Security Administration.”
Unemployment applicants in these states must submit to a new, more invasive level of vetting to receive payments.
As a veteran I have used ID.me before, and luckily I don’t recall having to provide biometrics data. Because biometric data implementation in our government sounds like one big precursor to me. Biometrics are fundamental to attaining the data required to roll out mass infrastructure like the CCP’s artificial intelligence role in their governing systems.
ID.me’s online authentication process begins with a request for permission to use details from the user’s credit profile and other public sources. Soon after that, the system requires users to consent to ID.me collecting their Social Security number and biometric data. The user cannot continue the process or receive unemployment without consenting.
The fine print explains ID.me may collect facial biometrics and voiceprints.
Users upload an image of a driver’s license or passport, and a current “selfie” image taken with their smartphone. In some cases, a video selfie is used.
“We use these images to create a facial geometry or faceprint which we use for purposes of identity verification and to prevent the fraudulent creation of multiple accounts in a fraudulent manner,” the agreement explains.
Users may also be required to call ID.me and leave a voice recording that is used to create a voiceprint. “We use this voiceprint for identity verification and to prevent the creation of multiple ID.me accounts in a fraudulent manner,” the agreement explains.
Collecting Biometric Data
ID.me stores a user’s biometric data for use up to seven and a half years after they stop using the service, the agreement says. Users may ask ID.me to delete their biometric data, but the company may decline the request in some cases.
“ID.me will never share your biometric data with a third party except to protect you or others from identity theft,” the consent agreement says.
However, the agreement also says ID.me can share biometric data with its clients such as the Department of Labor and Industry to process unemployment claims, plus third-party service providers and “other third parties where permitted by law, to enforce the terms, to comply with legal obligations or applicable, to respond to legal process (such as a subpoena, warrant or civil discovery request), to cooperate with law enforcement agencies concerning conduct or activity that we reasonably and in good faith believes may violate federal, state, or local law, and to prevent harm, loss or injury to others.”
Batches of digital files containing the personal information of each person authenticated by ID.me are regularly sent to the state. The files contain an individual’s full name, email address, phone number, Social Security number, date of birth, street address, city, state, postal code, gender, and a unique identifier.
ID.me tracks the IP address, town, and time when users interact with the company.
Where Is the Information Going?
The truth is, they’ll tell you anything you want to hear just so they can gather as much data as possible on each and every one of us. State contracted biometric data collection of our impoverished citizens makes me feel like there are bad intentions at play here. Have they crossed the line in your book yet? To me this looks like the inevitable march toward adopting a society close to that of China. Where you can be publicly humiliated like the photo shown below and instantly fined for jaywalking. This would also lower your social score, making it harder to be approved for lines of credit.
Wether you are aware or not, we are in a technological race with China. As we know they play by a different set of rules. The type of rules that force people to be in their own bubble and never see outside of it. Everything you do is tracked and stored into a massive database that is accessed by the artificial intelligence that helps govern China. If you’re following me you’d understand why the controversial app TikTok was targeted by President Trump and his administration. If you’d like to dive into the imminent threat that is artificial intelligence, you’d need to learn about the history of AI and how far it’s come in recent years.
This video is about the origin of AI and what caused China to take it more seriously. Examples like AlphaGo are what demonstrated the sheer power of computing. AI is capable of finding solutions to problems that no human has thought of before. Sounds to me like we are creating an omniscient sentient being with capabilities of solving complex problems in our society that wouldn’t be solved otherwise. Looks to me like someone needs to be there to ride the beast. Revelations 17 should put that into perspective for you as you watch the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast.
My advice would be for all to not focus your eyes too hard on all of the controversy. Just get a broad, wholistic perspective on who is out there, who is influencing you, and how you can prepare for the whats to come. I cannot make you look into the tech industry and find the red flags. But just know, our tech savvy youth are finding that there is more work to be found on the “www” than in their areas. So if you’re not looking out for yourself, you wont even know you’ve been blindsided by this AI machine.
