This morning, I will have the privilege of giving a keynote address before the National Press Club at a symposium organized by The International Biometrics + Identity Association (IBIA) on privacy and security issues surrounding the rising use of facial identification technology.
The symposium will explore the concern raised over facial recognition systems and seek to place those concerns into a legal and technological context. I have previously spoken on the tension between new technology and privacy rights — and the need to find pathways to protect privacy while recognizing the growth of these new systems in both governmental and private settings.
My address will discuss some of the guiding cases and principles in striking this type of balance.
I will be speaking 8:15 am at the National Press Club.
According to Tovah LaDier, IBIA managing director, “IBIA is excited for the opportunity to present this symposium to help the public better understand the benefits of facial recognition as the technology becomes widely used and accepted.”
