微软公司呼吁对面部识别技术进行监管

据路透社报道,近日微软公司向美国有关政府部门建议,希望对面部识别技术进行监管,为该技术的使用指定可行的法律指导文件。

消息传出之际,明尼苏达州的民主党众议员Keith Ellison和密苏里州的Emanuel Cleaver也向亚马逊提出了有关其面部识别技术(Rekognition)如何被全国各地的执法部门使用的问询。 Intercept援引5月份发给亚马逊首席执行官Jeff Bezos的一封信称,立法者希望获得详细信息,其中包含12项有关亚马逊面部识别技术信息的具体要求,比如执法机构和政府如何使用导致了有关种族和性别歧视行为。

在立法者追踪Facebook之后几个月,Ellison希望对亚马逊进行某种类型的国会监督。美国公民自由联盟(ACLU)及其附属机构以及其他35个公民自由团体对亚马逊如何在公开信中向执法部门推销该技术表示担忧。 Intercept在报道中指出,除公开信外,ACLU还一起发布了公开记录,揭示了亚马逊与佛罗里达州和俄勒冈州执法机构之间的关系。

据了解,上述两个周的两个警察部门使用了这项技术。 Ellison和Cleaver希望了解哪些其他执法机构正在使用该软件,以及哪些私营公司正在为其创建工具。他们还在寻求有关亚马逊网络服务可能经历的任何独立审计的信息,以确定软件中是否存在错误或偏见。

About two months after civil liberties organizations demanded that Amazon stop providing governments with facial recognition services, Microsoft is asking for government regulation of the technology. The tech company is also calling for laws to guide acceptable use, Reuters reported.

“We believe Congress should create a bipartisan expert commission to assess the best way to regulate the use of facial recognition technology in the United States,” Microsoft President Brad Smith wrote in a post on Microsoft’s website. “The purpose of such a commission should include advice to Congress on what types of new laws and regulations are needed, as well as stronger practices to ensure proper congressional oversight of this technology across the executive branch.”

The news comes as Democratic Representatives Keith Ellison of Minnesota and Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri were demanding answers from Amazon as to how its facial recognition technology, dubbed Rekognition, is being used by law enforcement around the country. The Intercept, citing a letter sent in May to Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos, reported that lawmakers want detailed information, with 12 specific requests for information on Amazon’s facial recognition technology, including how it could be used by law enforcement agencies and the government to engage in discrimination based on race and gender.

Ellison wants to have some type of congressional oversight over Amazon a few months after lawmakers went after Facebook. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and its affiliates, along with 35 other civil liberties groups, had expressed concerns about how Amazon markets the technology to law enforcement in a public letter. The ACLU, in conjunction with the open letter, released public records that shine a light on the relationship Amazon has with law enforcement agencies in Florida and Oregon, noted The Intercept.

Two police departments in those states use the technology. Ellison and Cleaver want to know which other law enforcement agencies are using the software, as well as which private companies create tools for it. They are also seeking information on any independent audit that Amazon Web Services may have undergone to determine whether there are errors or bias in the software.
