Boston bans government use of facial recognition

Boston City Council has voted to ban the use of facial recognition by the municipality, joining a growing list of administrations to outlaw the tech. It’s the second largest city in the US to ban facial recognition, after San Francisco enacted its ban in May 2019. The decision comes amid a growing backlash against the software, which research shows consistently misidentifies people of color.
