Multichannel News – NetChoice Praises NTIA Facial Recognition Effort
NetChoice, which represents Web companies and advocates for online commerce, was pleased with the National Telecommunications & Information Association’s facial recognition meeting Tuesday (July 28).
The meeting’s main goal was to vet two proposed privacy best practices for facial recognition, both by stakeholders, and one of the two proposed by NetChoice.
“Today was extremely productive as a diverse group of stakeholders made clear steps toward establishing facial recognition technology policies and regulations that foster transparency, control and closure,” said Carl Szabo, policy counsel for NetChoice. “I think we all agree that companies using facial recognition technologies should provide people with meaningful control when their facial image data is shared with others who might not otherwise have access to or are authorized to have access to that data. We continue to encourage all interested parties to participate in this inclusive and cooperative process.”
