| ||Ask HN: How could a local face recognition system for a health club go wrong?|

|I am wary of facial recognition systems when implemented by big governments, big corporations, etc...|
But I have a unique use case which would make checking into my local yoga studio so much better.
Instead of lining up to have a front desk staff member who doesn't know your name or face double check that you have enough credits left to attend a yoga class...
Imagine if you could just walk through the door, with a screen saying "Hi flyGuyOnTheSly, you have 5 classes remaining after you use this one!" and you could just walk into class.
The only angle I can think of for this kind of system going wrong would be if the "small yoga studio" grew into a "big yoga studio" or "big something else" and continued to implement and grow their facial recognition data.
But other than that, any concerns you might have would be appreciated.
Thanks for reading.
