Amazon Says ‘No’ to Police Use of Face Scan Technology
NEW YORK (AP) — Amazon is holding down the pause button a bit longer on its ban on police use of its face-recognition technology. The hi-tech giant announced a one-year moratorium last year. And now it says it will continue the ban. Amazon and other firms that make facial detection software are under fire from civil rights groups and their own workers to stop selling the systems to police. Some claim the systems can't accurately identify those with darker skin, something Amazon denies. Amazon didn't say why it extended the ban — or when it will end.
