The UK’s former Surveillance Camera Commissioner Tony Porter has taken on the role of Chief Privacy Officer at facial recognition provider Corsight AI. Porter will be responsible for ensuring the technology is not only legally compliant across international jurisdictions, but also operates to the highest ethical standards.

“By joining Corsight AI, I firmly believe we can help change perceptions surrounding [facial recognition] and demonstrate how it can be a force for good,” said Tony Porter, Chief Privacy Officer for Corsight AI. “As part of my role, I am keen to engage with those who are concerned about the technology’s use within society, so we can help Corsight AI provide the great value to society I know it can.”
