The Washington Post reports Microsoft President Brad Smith announced the company won't sell its facial-recognition software to law enforcement. As Microsoft follows similar measures by Amazon and IBM, Smith said sales to police will not resume "until we have a national law in place, grounded in human rights, that will govern this technology." Additionally, Microsoft will implement "review factors" when sales resume. Meanwhile, Hawaii's Department of Transportation is adding facial recognition in airports to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
