Somerville, Mass. Bans Facial Recognition .

The Somerville, Mass. City Council has voted to ban the use of facial recognition technology in public spaces.

The anti-facial recognition ordinance would bar any city department or agency from using facial surveillance over concerns that the practice invades residents  privacy and tends to be less accurate identifying people of colour, especially women and young people .
