CFE Virtual Forum Series:
Millions use facial recognition technology daily to unlock smartphones and tag friends in photos. But the same technology is viewed by many as a threat to human rights and civil liberties. IBM has gotten out of the facial recognition business altogether, and Amazon and Microsoft have refused to make their facial recognition technology available to the police. Can it be regulated and safely used or should it be fully or partially banned? Join a panel of experts in conversation about this technology and what should be done.
