Facial recognition, Surveillance and privacy

Featured speaker: 

professor Brian e. ray

Director, Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection

Leon and Gloria Plevin Professor of Law

Growing use of facial recognition technology and concerns over inherent bias as well as the risk of mass surveillance generally have prompted calls for stricter regulation and even bans. Several cities and counties have banned public agencies and a handful have prohibited private companies from using facial recognition or passed legislation to demand more transparency on how police use it and other surveillance tools. This talk will explore this push to regulate facial recognition and the concerns that have motivated it.

Professor Brian Ray has extensive experience in information governance, cybersecurity, and data privacy. He co-founded and directs the Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection and edits the Center-sponsored SSRN Cybersecurity, Data Privacy and eDiscovery eJournal. Ray also co-founded the Cleveland eDiscovery, Data Security and Privacy Roundtable, an informal group of lawyers, judges and academics that meets monthly to discuss issues surrounding electronic discovery, cybersecurity and data privacy issues.
