Police departments, federal agencies, and technology companies across the country are seeing revived scrutiny of facial recognition technology, which is capable of identifying people, sometimes without their knowledge or consent. Research has repeatedly demonstrated that some facial recognition systems perform differently depending on race and gender, and the use of such technology is not always disclosed to the defense when used to identify a suspect in a criminal case.
How can defense lawyers identify a facial recognition case, and why is facial recognition technology so difficult to challenge in court? This free CLE webinar offered by NACDL on July 23, 2020 at 1 pm will discuss the functions, the scientific reliability and limitations, and the legal challenges of facial recognition technology for the criminal defense bar. Attorneys do no need to be members of NACDL to participate in the webinar.
This life webinar will feature Clare Garvie, Senior Associate with the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law, Phil Mayor, Senior Staff Attorney with ACLU of Michigan, and Dr. Arun Ross, the John and Eva Cillag Endowed Chair in the College of Engineering and a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University.
