Facial Recognition Technology: Governance Challenges and Opportunities

This event has passed.

Please join us for a virtual conversation delving into the complex policy issues related to face recognition technologies and why developing legislation to govern its use has been difficult. After a presentation on what independent, third-party testing reveals about face recognition algorithms’ accuracy, expert panelists will explore how to balance the benefits of face recognition technology with the sociotechnical risks the technologies can produce.
