“We’re never going to make this technology perfect”: Professor Erik Learned-Miller Advocates for a New Federal Agency to Regulate Facial Recognition Technology
UMass College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) Professor Erik Learned-Miller recently co-authored a white paper calling for a new federal authority to regulate facial recognition technology. On July 15, Learned-Miller held a Q&A session on the topic of facial recognition and regulation, attended by 160 participants from academia, industry, and government. The session was the first in the CICS Technology and Social Justice webinar series, which will “explore how computing innovation intersects with vitally important issues such as structural bias, civic participation, economic inequality, and citizen privacy,” according to CICS Dean Laura Haas, who hosted the session.
