    "Facial recognition reveals political party in troubling new research

    Researchers have created a machine learning system that they claim can determine a person’s political party, with reasonable accuracy, based only on their face...

    The study, which appeared this week in the Nature journal Scientific Reports, was conducted by Stanford University’s Michal Kosinski...

    The study drew criticism not so much for its methods but for the very idea that something that’s notionally non-physical could be detected this way. But Kosinski’s work, as he explained then and afterwards, was done specifically to challenge those assumptions and was as surprising and disturbing to him as it was to others..."

    "Here’s a Way to Learn if Facial Recognition Systems Used Your Photos

    An online tool targets only a small slice of what’s out there, but may open some eyes to how widely artificial intelligence research fed on personal images...

    The tool, which matches images from the Flickr online photo-sharing service, offers a window onto the vast amounts of data needed to build a wide variety of A.I technologies, from facial recognition to online “chatbots.”

    Flickr images make up a significant swath of the facial recognition data sets that have been passed around the internet..."

    "Surveillance Nation

    A BuzzFeed News investigation has found that employees at law enforcement agencies across the US ran thousands of Clearview AI facial recognition searches — often without the knowledge of the public or even their own departments...

    According to reporting and data reviewed by BuzzFeed News, more than 7,000 individuals from nearly 2,000 public agencies nationwide have used Clearview AI to search through millions of Americans’ faces, looking for people, including Black Lives Matter protesters, Capitol insurrectionists, petty criminals, and their own friends and family members...

    ...the data indicates that Clearview has broadly distributed its facial recognition software to federal agencies and police departments nationwide, offering the app to thousands of police officers and government employees, who at times used it without training or oversight. Often, agencies that acknowledged their employees had used the software confirmed it happened without the knowledge of their superiors, let alone the public they serve..."
