What are the risks and ethics of facial recognition tech? | Public Interest Technology

How do we ensure that facial recognition technology is developed responsibly and ethically? Risk Bites dives into the rather serious risks and ethical problems presented by face recognition. Because this such an important issue, we can only scratch the surface in 4 minutes – so please do check out the links and resources below! As you may have noticed, we’re also experimenting with using a black glass dry erase board (it’s another consequence of coronavirus, where I’m filming from my home office!) – let us know what you think! The video is part of Risk Bites series on Public Interest Technology - technology in the service of public good.
