MeriTalk: AWS Offers Support Facial Recognition Legislation:

Amazon Web Services (AWS) shared its support for calls for a national legislative framework when it comes to regulating facial recognition software in a blog post written today by VP of Global Public Policy Michael Punke.

After concerns have been raised over possible discrimination and civil rights violations, AWS noted that it consistently tests its facial recognition to optimize the benefits and weigh the potential risks.

“The use of facial recognition technology must comply with all laws, including laws that protect civil rights,” Punke wrote. He cites the Civil Rights Act and the Fourth Amendment as existing laws with which facial recognition should abide.

The call for facial recognition legislation follows Microsoft’s push for legislation back in December.
