San Francisco bans police use of face recognition technology

San Francisco voted Tuesday to ban the use of facial recognition software by police and other city departments, becoming the first US city to outlaw the rapidly developing technology. The ban is part of broader legislation that requires city departments to establish use policies and obtain board approval for surveillance technology.
