What’s up with FACIAL RECOGNITION? | Crash Course: Data for Black Lives | Episode 2, Season 1

What’s up with facial recognition? Facial recognition technology has become well integrated into so many parts of our lives. We unlock our phones with our face, Facebook can automatically recognize our friends’ faces, and (most concerning) law enforcement can easily recognize our faces in pictures we post on the internet. What happens when this tech is placed in the wrong hands? In this episode of the Crash Course, Linda explains just that, with the help of the work of Joy Buolamwini and Timnit Gebru.
