Nicholas Thompson, editor-in-chief of WIRED, discusses technology industry news today:
What are the concerns with facial recognition and will IBM's decision to no longer offer the tech mark the end of its use?
The concern is that the technology is racially biased. It's better at picking out white faces than black faces. Another concern is it could be abused by authorities like the police, who have a lot of power, they can immediately identify who everyone is. Will IBM dropping out end it? No, IBM was kind of far behind on this technology.
