We acknowledge that many people have concerns about privacy and anonymity that are rooted in moral and legal philosophies. These are matters of opinion on which reasonable people may disagree and should be resolved in the public arena.

The objectives of this event are to: provide facts that can help to inform conversations about facial recognition, support a debate based on fact and grounded on reasoned analysis, and clarify the distinction between data security, including personally identifiable information (PII), and the technology used for identification, including biometrics.

At the December 11 program, leading authorities will forthrightly examine the validity of the following central concerns that have been raised about facial recognition technology:

  • ‘Discriminatory’ algorithms
  • Fails to meet the standard of ‘perfect’ that should be applied to this technology
  • Catalyst for a future surveillance society
  • Privacy invasive
  • Violation of 4th amendment rights

IBIA is honored to present the keynote speaker, Professor Jonathan Turley, renowned legal scholar and law professor at George Washington Law School.

Be a part of what promises to be an engaging and provocative dialogue on facial recognition.
