Despite some false positive flaws, the US face recognition market could reach $3B by 2027.

The Chinese are seeing even more traction on this front being market leaders and having much more lax legislation around the use of face ID tech for public surveillance. San Francisco has banned the use, London has not. Current flaws are with regards to skin color false positives. The reason for this is not necessarily a bias against non-whites, but the nature of machine learning. If the AI sees more white features, it will produce white feature biased results (because that's what it ''knows''). Engineers will need to feed machines more non-white data to solve this problem which could take some time.
