Portland, OR Considering Banning Facial Recognition
Portland, Oregon is considering banning facial recognition.
According to a news report, city officials are planning on meeting to discuss banning "Smart City" technology, including traffic monitoring and identification tools used by city employees and the police department.
Recently, the technology has come under fire for allegedly misidentifying individuals. In May, San Francisco, Calif. became the first city in the United States to ban facial recognition, and many other cities have since implemented similar restrictions.
