San Francisco Becomes First U.S. City to Ban Face Recognition Surveillance Video by DAHBOO
San Francisco on Tuesday became the first city in America to ban the use of facial recognition technology by police and other government agencies.
The measure passed in an 8-1 vote by San Francisco’s board of supervisors. The debate over the bill is essentially over. California law requires two votes for an ordinance to go into effect, and the second vote is at this point a formality.
