Racial bias in facial recognition technology
A Georgia man says authorities wrongly arrested him based on a match generated by facial recognition technology. Randal Quran Reid filed a lawsuit this month against the Louisiana detective who sought his arrest warrant. He is among at least five Black plaintiffs who have sued law enforcement in recent years alleging they were wrongly arrested on the basis of facial recognition technology.
Thaddeus Johnson, a former ranking law enforcement official in Memphis, Tenn., and assistant professor of criminal justice and criminology at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University joined LiveNOW to discuss the case and the advancement of facial recognition technology.
