FedScoop: ACLU demands Amazon, Microsoft and Google stop facial recognition sales to government

“The American Civil Liberties Union, together with a coalition of over 85 racial justice and civil rights groups, is demanding that Amazon, Google and Microsoft stop selling facial recognition software to the government.”

“The coalition sent separate letters to each of the three companies, addressing company-specific concerns in each. For example, the group has mostly kind words for Google, a company that formulated and released AI “principles” after employee protests led the company to drop out of a Department of Defense AI contract. Google has since turned down government work on the basis of these principles.” Read the full article here.
