Programs that can ID  a person just by photo can fail.
The programs work best on people of the white race.
Read it for yourself.

Facial recognition systems show rampant racial bias,

Quote
Washington, DC (CNN Business)Federal researchers have found widespread evidence of racial bias in nearly 200 facial recognition algorithms in an extensive government study, highlighting the technology's shortcomings and potential for misuse.
Racial minorities were far more likely than whites to be misidentified in the US government's testing, the study found, raising fresh concerns about the software's impartiality even as more government agencies at the city, state and federal level clamor to use it.
This includes software sold by Amazon.  :-X
Quote
Amazon, which sells facial recognition software to police departments, was not among the participants. The NIST told CNN Business that submissions were voluntary and that Amazon informed the agency that it did not think its software was compatible with the test.
