Diversity and Inclusion Series: 

Discriminatory Surveillance 
For registration

The Internet Law and Policy Foundry (ILPF) is excited to invite you to the third event in our Diversity and Inclusion Event Series, which explores how issues of diversity, inclusion, and equity intersect with the internet law and policy spaces.

Diversity & Inclusion Event Series: Discriminatory Surveillance

Powered by artificial intelligence, surveillance technologies such as facial recognition technologies can now identify, track, and analyze individuals and their behaviors in real time and recognize up to 100 people in a single image by can quickly scanning information it collects against databases that feature tens of millions of data points. These surveillance technologies are increasingly being adopted by law enforcement, with few safeguards and oversight, raising concerns related to privacy and data protection among other things. This panel will explore how surveillance technologies have been developed and deployed in the United States, how the use of these tools have contributed to discriminatory outcomes, and what effective policy reforms in this space could look like.

A link to the event will be sent to registered attendees on the day of the event.

Tickets are free. Donation tickets are available in case you wish to support the Foundry activity.
