Detroit Police Department's facial recognition software has an error rate of 96%...and it's only used on African-Americans


Recommended Posts

Detroit regulated facial recognition software. It's still used only on Black people.

Quote

Detroit police have used highly unreliable facial recognition technology almost exclusively against Black people so far in 2020, according to the Detroit Police Department’s own statistics. The department’s use of the technology gained national attention last week after the American Civil Liberties Union and New York Times brought to light the case of Robert Julian-Borchak Williams, a man who was wrongfully arrested because of the technology.
