Distinctive Voices: An Open Discussion on Facial Recognition Technology
Wednesday, Dec 4, 2019
7:00pm – 9:00pm
For nearly 60 years, the U.S. government has been investing in the development, testing and standardization of automated technologies for recognizing persons by their faces. In this talk, Dr. James Wayman will give a brief history of the development of automated facial recognition, explain how the computer algorithms really work, show recent government test results on system accuracies, look at current state and local legislation limiting both government and private applications, explore criticisms of racial bias and function creep, then open the floor for a give and take with the audience on the appropriateness of government and private applications. Come give us your opinion on facial recognition technologies.
