ACLU: US face recognition lawsuit

The American American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) complained the US Government for not disclosing details about the use of face recognition at airports (PDF).

On Thursday, the ACLU and the New York Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit in a Federal asking various federal agencies to hand over any records related to the use of facial recognition technology at airports.


The complaint centers on the government being able to use it to monitor all our movements and as we mentioned above why he refused to give more details about what he does with this particular technology.

To learn more, the ACLU is looking for details on the comps της κυβέρνησης με τις αεροπορικές εταιρείες και τα αεροδρόμια που διαθέτουν . Τι κάνει με τις βιομετρικές πληροφορίες και τις ανα them and generally asks to learn about the effectiveness of the technology.

The ACLU says government agencies have already been spotted monitoring journalists, subjecting innocent travelers to humiliating investigations, usually targeting people of other nationalities and different political and religious beliefs.

Face recognition will be a very powerful tool for achieving such goals if allowed to remain unchecked.

The ACLU claims that its previous requests for this information have been ignored, which makes it even more concerned.

Η αγωγή ζητά τα αρχεία από το Τμήμα Εσωτερικής Ασφάλειας (Department of Security or DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

These services are rapidly expanding the use of face recognition at borders.

A number of airlines such as Delta and JetBlue have partnered with CBP to develop the technology, which has scanned more than 20 million passengers entering and leaving the US by June 2019.

DHS has already proposed scanning American citizens at airports, despite members of Congress and civil liberties groups expressing "deep concern for privacy."

If the ACLU finally achieves something with its complaint, we could at least see what the US government is doing with the data. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
