Facial Recognition Technology Is Both Biased and Understudied

Just how extensive, accurate, and closely monitored is the New York City Police Department’s facial recognition technology? At the moment, no one really knows, but these are the key questions animating a freedom-of-information lawsuit against the NYPD by researchers from the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law.
David Vladeck, Faculty Director of the Center, points out, “If no records exist, that means that there are no controls on the use of face recognition technology and we ought to worry about that. If there are records, then why did the Police Department say that it couldn’t find them? The lawsuit we’ve filed aims to get to the bottom of those questions.”
