Privacy groups file a complaint against facial recognition software
Several civil rights groups today filed complaints against facial recognition company Clearview AI with several European privacy watchdogs.
The activists believe the facial recognition software violates European privacy laws. Clearview sells the software to companies and the police, among others.
The software uses a web scraper to collect photos of human faces and is now said to have about 3 billion of them in its database. The database can again be used to recognize faces through algorithms.
