Boston Bans Facial Recognition After Misidentification From The Technology

The Boston City Council unanimously approved an ordinance that will ban face tracking.

This includes the purchase and use of facial recognition technology by city officials and police.

Detroit police arrested and interrogated a man after facial recognition incorrectly identified him.

Local bans on facial recognition, like this Boston ordinance, will undercut big tech efforts.

It will stop facial recognition acceptance and reform at the federal level.

Amazon, IBM, and Microsoft have also stopped the sale of facial recognition services to police.
