Letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Clearview AI TechnologyApril 19, 2021

Type:Letter / Comment
Advancing Justice | AAJC signed on to a letter from civil rights and human interest organizations expressing concern for the federal government’s use of facial recognition technology provided by private company Clearview AI. Face recognition has been shown to return false positives in law enforcement use. In each confirmed instance of a false positive, the arrested individual was a person of color. These inherent biases are all the more concerning given that Clearview AI was founded by individuals with reported ties to far-right and white nationalist organizations
