Facial recognition is playing an increasing role in law enforcement, border security and other purposes in the U.S. and around the world.Heightening those concerns are studies showing facial recognition may not always be accurate, especially for people of color.A 2016 Georgetown University study found that one in two American adults, or 117 million people, are in facial recognition databases with few rules on how these systems may be accessed. Amazon is one of dozens of tech firms involved in facial recognition. Microsoft for example uses facial recognition for U.S. border security, and the U.S. state of Maryland uses technology from German-based Cognitec and Japanese tech firm NEC.Nonetheless, some say facial recognition should not be deployed by law enforcement because of the potential for errors and abuse.Evan Selinger, a philosophy professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology, says facial recognition is too dangerous for law enforcement.
