Episode 4 speaker Avi Gesser co-authored a piece with Debevoise colleagues in October 2021 entitled “Face Forward: Strategies for Complying with Facial Recognition Laws”.  The piece states, among other things:

“Two huge crosscurrents are sweeping the world of facial recognition—and moving head-on into each other.  Companies are eagerly adopting facial recognition tools to better serve their customers, reduce their fraud risks, and manage their workforces.  Meanwhile, legislatures and privacy advocates are pushing back hard.  They challenge facial recognition as inherently overreaching, invasive of privacy, and prone to error and bias.  Legal restrictions of different kinds have been enacted around the country, seemingly with more to come.”


The piece also provides a lot of state-level detail.
