Portland was one of the first cities in the nation to prohibit certain uses of facial recognition technology (FRT) by private businesses. This was followed by a limit on the use of FRT by City of Portland entities. Will other Oregon jurisdictions follow suit? And what is FRT and how is it being used? FRT is a type of biometric technology that collects and processes billion of pictures from databases and the web to generate a composite. Initially used to improve security measures, the application of FRT has expanded—from detecting known shoplifters to identifying a customer’s preferred cocktail. Yet as the use and applications of FRT grow so does the feeling that “big brother is watching.” In addition to concerns about privacy and data protection, a discriminatory impact exists. Database flaws have led to the misidentification of individuals—disproportionately people of color—resulting in wrongful arrests and incarceration. There is little federal regulation of biometric privacy. State and local governments will be under increased pressure to step in to fill the gaps and, in particular, to address the discriminatory effects of FRT. Don’t miss this opportunity to join Professor Sam Hodge for an informative and engaging exploration of the anticipated measures to regulate the evolving field of FRT.
