Portland authorities banned facial recognition systems




The authorities of the American city of Portland (Oregon) have officially banned the use of facial recognition technologies in public places. This means that such systems cannot be used even by government agencies — for example, the police.

In addition to law enforcement, the ban applies to private companies. All public places were banned: hotels, shops, restaurants. The requirement will take effect from January next year. Organizations that go against the law will have to pay $1000 for each day of violation.

The reasons for the complete ban lie in the observance of the rights of vulnerable social groups: people on racial grounds can come under increased attention of the police, which leads to abuse of power. Such cases have already been recorded.

Amazon has already expressed concern that the law passed in Portland could create a dangerous precedent for business: similar bans are not excluded in other cities.
