Facial Recognition as Surveillance: The Need for Public Oversight

Friday, October 18, 2019 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm

32-155 32 Vassar Street

Join us for a substantive discussion on facial surveillance and other remote biometric monitoring technologies that pose unprecedendted risks to personal autonomy, privacy and democracy.  Some have referred to these technologies as "nuclear waste". Others have called it "the perfect tool for oppression." Never before has a technology equipped governments with the power to automatically generate and store permanent, detailed records of every person's every public movement, habit, and association—until now.
