Facial Recognition and Equity

September 24, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This event is part of the “Artificial Intelligence for Social Impact and Equity” series, a set of conversations about how artificial intelligence and the algorithms around us are making our society more or less fair and prosperous and how we can harness AI for the greatest positive social impact.

The series is curated by Colleen Chien (@colleen_chien) (Law) and Irina Raicu (MCAE) (@IEthics), co-sponsored by the High Tech Law Institute and the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics

Also co-sponsored by ACLU – SCU Club, Santa Clara Law Center for Social Justice


Guest Speaker: Matt Cagle, Technology and Civil Liberties Attorney, ACLU

Matt CagleThe recent ascendance of authoritarian and populous politics has made the spread of advanced facial recognition technology more salient and disconcerting than ever. Unfettered deployment of this technology has particularly significant implications for privacy rights, free association, and even freedom of movement. Join us for a discussion with Matt Cagle, an expert technology and civil liberties attorney with the ACLU, on the latest developments of facial recognition technology and efforts to address them through law and policy. The discussion will be moderated by Colleen Chien, Professor of Law at Santa Clara University and former Senior Advisor on Intellectual Property and Innovation for the Obama White House.
