San Francisco might ban facial recognition
The use of facial recognition technology might be banned in San Francisco as first city in the U.S.
It was proposed by city board member Aaron Peskin. This would make an approval process necessary for any new surveillance technology purchases by city agencies such as license plate readers, CCTV, and gun-detection systems.
According Aaron Peskin: “We know that facial recognition technology, which has the biases of the people who developed it, disproportionately misidentifies people of color and women. This is a fact.”
The legislation has already gained a lot of support from civil rights groups such as the ACLU of Northern California and it will be reviewed in committee in February.
