- The FTC is seeking public comment on issues raised at a December 2011 workshop on the privacy and security implications raised by facial recognition technology. The workshop, entitled “Face Facts: A Forum on Facial Recognition Technology”, focused on the current and future commercial applications of facial detection and recognition technologies, and explored an array of current uses of these technologies, their possible future uses and benefits, and the resulting privacy and security concerns. Facial detection and recognition technologies have already been employed in a variety of new contexts, including online social networks, digital signs, and mobile apps. The deadline for filing comments is January 31, 2012. More information and instructions for filing can be found here.
