Racist facial recognition technology is being used by police at anti-racism protests

racist facial recognition technology is being used by police at anti-racism protests

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The protests that have sparked across the US and around the world following the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer have drawn sharp attention to the systematic racism embedded in Western society, and in particular, law enforcement. But one of the technologies being used by police amid the protests is set to exacerbate the already severe inequalities in the criminal justice system: facial recognition.
Exact numbers on which facial recognition technologies are deployed by which police forces remains unclear; many police forces do not disclose this information, and the major providers to police forces do not disclose the names of their clients. However, it is clear that the technology is extremely widespread, with major providers including Amazon, through its Rekognition software, and Clearview AI.

A 2016 investigation by the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law found that one in four police forces were using facial recognition, and that half of adults in the US were in a police facial recognition database, but those numbers are now likely to be considerably higher.

Consider that each state develops its own commissions and set of operating standards, while cities and towns also create their own guidelines regarding transactions, auditing and documentation. The result is literally thousands of variations on the rules and regulations that govern the cannabis industry. 
For multistate operators, these nuances in state and local laws create complexity at every level of the organization. Whether it’s securing an operating permit, hiring a new employee or even creating packaging, different rules apply – but they must be adhered to in order to remain in good standing.
Accomplishing that can take teams of risk and compliance officers, lawyers and community ambassadors. It can mean petitioning cities and towns for meeting notes, tracking regulatory changes on local levels where companies operate – or want to – and reviewing each and every outgoing marketing message for compliance.

Fyllo believes it can streamline regulatory tasks for cannabis companies with …

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency is considering major changes to how it regulates the way banks develop and use technology, the agency announced Thursday. With the release of an advance notice of proposed rulemaking, the OCC said it was planning to revisit the rules governing bank technology to ensure that its regulation is “sufficiently flexible and clear in light of the technological advances that have transformed the financial industry over the past two decades,” according to a press release.The OCC’s ANPR asks just over a dozen questions on a wide range of technologies as well as regulatory processes. The agency said it was seeking input on how it could improve the way it regulates activities related to cryptocurrency, distributed ledger technology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and more.On AI, for instance, the OCC asked stakeholders to articulate how “AI techniques, including machine learning, [are] used or potentially used in activities related to banking.” The national bank regulator also asked the public if there were “ways the banking industry could be, but is not, using AI because of issues such as regulatory complexity, lack of transparency, audit and audit trail complexities, or other regulatory barriers.”
