- A report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office surveyed federal agencies' use of facial recognition technology. Of the 42 agencies examined, the GAO found 20 owned systems equipped with facial recognition technology and six of those used the tech to identify individuals following last year's protests of the murder of George Floyd. The GAO offered recommendations for 13 agencies to assess the risks of these systems.
