Will We Ever Know the Full Extent of the Government’s Facial Recognition Program?

The Infinite Brief
A recent congressional hearing made it very clear: facial recognition technology is not well-regulated, it does impact the privacy of travelers, and its effectiveness has yet to be proven.

The government’s use of facial recognition comes with a host of privacy and justice concerns, including the claim that the technology has a higher error rate with people of color.

Oddly enough, the group most in need of a check on how they use these technologies, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), was not in attendance at this hearing.

In spite of this changing public perception, the U.S. government continues to push its expanding use of face recognition and biometric surveillance. It’s up to us to stop it.
