Lawmakers call for regulation of facial recognition tech

A bipartisan group of lawmakers is calling for regulations to restrict the use of facial recognition technology before ’it gets out of control’. Members of the Congressional House Oversight and Reform Committee held a hearing on the topic Wednesday, during which legislators from across the political spectrum expressed concern over the use of software that is used to identify individuals.
