Overview Edit


The Federal Trade Commission hosted a workshop in Washington, D.C. on December 8, 2011, exploring facial recognition technology and the privacy and security implications raised by its increasing use. Facial recognition technology has been adopted in a variety of new contexts, ranging from online social networks to digital signs and mobile apps.

Major topics included: (1) recent advances in facial recognition technologies, (2) current commercial uses of facial recognition technologies, (3) possible future uses of facial recognition technologies, and (4) privacy concerns raised by current and possible future uses of facial recognition technologies.

The FTC workshop gathered consumer protection organizations, academics, business and industry representatives, privacy professionals, and others to examine the use of facial recognition technology and related privacy and security concerns.
