82 - What should we do about facial recognition technology?


Brenda Leong
 

Facial recognition technology has seen its fair share of both media and popular attention in the past 12 months. The runs the gamut from controversial uses by governments and police forces, to coordinated campaigns to ban or limit its use. What should we do about it? In this episode, I talk to Brenda Leong about this issue. Brenda is Senior Counsel and Director of Artificial Intelligence and Ethics at Future of Privacy Forum. She manages the FPF portfolio on biometrics, particularly facial recognition. She authored the FPF Privacy Expert’s Guide to AI, and co-authored the paper, “Beyond Explainability: A Practical Guide to Managing Risk in Machine Learning Models.” Prior to working at FPF, Brenda served in the U.S. Air Force.

  • How is the technology used?
  • What are the benefits of facial recognition?
  • What's bad about it? What are the privacy and other risks?
  • Is there something unique about the face that should make us more worried about facial biometrics when compared to other forms?
  • What can we do to address the risks? Should we regulate or ban?
