‘Ban this technology’: students protest US universities’ use of facial recognition


Students at universities across the United States participated in protests to demand their schools refrain from using facial recognition on campus.

The protests on Monday came after pushback led by students and digital rights group Fight for The Future against a proposed facial recognition program at the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA) led the school to reverse course and drop the technology. Students at around a dozen schools staged protests on campus in person this week while 36 schools saw online actions including petitions.
