Facial recognition’s ‘dirty little secret’: Millions of online photos scraped without consent (NBC News)

NBC News: Facial recognition’s ‘dirty little secret’: Millions of online photos scraped without consent. “As the algorithms get more advanced — meaning they are better able to identify women and people of color, a task they have historically struggled with — legal experts and civil rights advocates are sounding the alarm on researchers’ use of photos of ordinary people. These people’s faces are being used without their consent, in order to power technology that could eventually be used to surveil them. That’s a particular concern for minorities who could be profiled and targeted, the experts and advocates say.”
