The Federal Trade Commission held a workshop in Washington, DC on December 8, 2011, exploring facial recognition technology and the privacy and security implications raised by its increasing use. Facial recognition technology has been adopted in a variety of new contexts, ranging from online social networks to digital signs and mobile apps. The FTC workshop will gather consumer protection organizations, academics, business and industry representatives, privacy professionals, and others to examine the use of facial recognition technology and related privacy and security concerns.
