The Meandering Path to Regulating Face Recognition and AI

#ArtificialIntelligence, #FaceRecognition, #Ethics, #Regulation, #Legislation

IEEE CS SD Invited Seminar Series 2024 - Lecture 5

Recent years have seen impressive advances in face recognition, machine learning, and generative AI technologies, and they are being increasingly deployed in a wide variety of applications. Yet they have also raised serious concerns with respect to privacy, bias, fairness, and serious misuse by individuals, companies, and governments. Some civil liberties and advocacy groups have been raising dire warnings and promoting legislation to ban such technologies. Legislative bodies at various levels are addressing these issues, sometimes in piecemeal or patchwork fashion and with limited information. We will review the current landscape and ask the question:  As technologists, what is our role in the public debate and the legislative process? Let’s discuss.
