Friday, June 11, 2021 - 5:00pm

SILVER SPRING, Md., June 11, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --On June 8, the Baltimore City Council voted 13-2 to approve what would be the most extreme ban by a local jurisdiction on personal and business applications of facial recognition technology.

Key Points: 
  • SILVER SPRING, Md., June 11, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --On June 8, the Baltimore City Council voted 13-2 to approve what would be the most extreme ban by a local jurisdiction on personal and business applications of facial recognition technology.
  • We urge City leaders to continue dialogue that could lead to a balanced, commonsense policy for the use of facial recognition that safeguards access to innovative services for city residents while addressing concerns about the technology and could serve as a model policy for other local jurisdictions rather than an outright ban.
  • SIA believes all technology products, including facial recognition, must only be used for purposes that are lawful, ethical and nondiscriminatory.
  • In August 2020, SIA released new policy principles for the development and deployment of facial recognition technology, which include guidelines around the use of facial recognition technology by law enforcement and the public and private sectors.
