What would be some examples of that use of facial recognition?

Industrial plant. If there are problems in some area and need to check who is present or able to help.

Read what china is doing with social scoring of the whole population. Pretty Orwellian stuff.

Yep very sad, but we should split technology and use of it. Facial recognition is not more dangerous of ML, blockchain or other.... The problems come from man's choice.

What would face recognition bring here that classic pager duty tech can't?

Into industrial plant, the face recognition could be useful for retrieve information about who was involved into dangerous problems or call someone with right skills and near to dangerous area to help quickly.

retrieve information about who was involved into dangerous problems

Dangerous problems lead to serious investigations, in which humans will examine security/CCTV footage. I don't think they'll rely on automatic face recognition for this. And that technique is already used in China for far lesser offenses, like littering.

call someone with right skills and near to dangerous area to help quickly

How does face recognition help in this case, vs. an employee directory?
