Facial recognition in airports? 64% of Americans are on board

At first glance, the 64.9% of our respondents that said they’d be willing to use facial recognition technology to get through lines at the airport faster might seem to support our theory of a growing trust in A.I. technology.

A.I. has begun helping out in a lot of areas that were once only handled by humans, from transportation, to factory work, to even finances. A.I. is only growing more capable and popular by the day, so how does the average American feel about it? It’s not an easy question to answer, especially when you consider that we are currently living in an age where there are generations that knew a life before the internet and one that has only ever known a computer-run world. But we tried our best to get to the bottom of it. 

TransImpact created a survey that asked respondents for their opinions on subjects like self-driving cars, facial recognition, and A.I. technologies in general. It ran for one day in January 2022 and received 1,000 responses in total. 

At first glance, the 64.9% of our respondents that said they’d be willing to use facial recognition technology to get through lines at the airport faster might seem to support our theory of a growing trust in A.I. technology, but it’s hard to say whether or not this statistic is simply indicative of people’s willingness to forgo a certain amount of privacy in exchange for convenience.  

Sometimes results can be quite predictable. When comparing responses across generations, it became clear that the younger generations are more likely to trust and even rely on A.I. and technology in general. 

For example, Gen Zers have the highest percentage of people that trust self-driving cars a moderate amount or more (52.6%) while baby boomers have the highest percentage of people that don’t trust self-driving cars at all (30.43%). 20.3% of Gen Zers say they have complete trust in navigation apps, yet just 4% of baby boomers feel the same way. And 81.4% of baby boomers think they’d be able to manage their finances without the help of technology, while just 45.4% of Gen Zers shared this sentiment.
