The Center is urging support for a ban on Facial Surveillance Technology and other forms of mass biometric identification. The campaign grows out of earlier research for the report AI and Democratic Values, which found that Facial Surveillance Technology is the most controversial application of AI and the most closely associated with the denial of fundamental rights and the rule of law.
