Reconnaissance faciale : fuites de données et discrimination, de Sao Paulo à Detroit

C'était l'un des promesses techniques de l'année. C'est un four. Les Gafa font marche arrière et les failles de cette technologie apparaissent au grand jour. Elle devait protéger la population, elle expose des données privées et intègre les biais qu'elle devait exterminer. Le point sur la question. from ZDNet News https://bit.ly/3gfzZbo via IFTTT

EFF to Court: Social Media Users Have Privacy and Free Speech Interests in Their Public Information Special thanks to legal intern Rachel Sommers, who was the lead author of this post. Visa applicants to the United States are required to disclose personal information including their work, travel, and family histories .
