Event description

Description

Facial recognition is a pervasive part of our daily lives. Our face can unlock our phones and allow us entry into a country. Facial recognition can also allow us to be tracked wherever we go online and in the physical world. This talk will explore the technology, how it works, what it is used for—the good and the bad—and how we can manage what our faces say about us.
