The Perpetual Line-Up: Unregulated Police Face Recognition in America

  • 12:00PM to 1:00PM
  • Room 121

People often think of face recognition technology as some science fiction future. In reality, a recent report by the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law found that half of all American adults are in a police or FBI face recognition network. Police face recognition technology is much more pervasive than people realize — yet it is not subject to any meaningful system of regulation. In this talk, Alvaro Bedoya and Clare Garvie will discuss The Perpetual Line-Up, the Center's recent year-long investigation into police use of face recognition.
