Lawmakers in Portland, Oregon, have approved a privacy resolution that aims to regulate facial-recognition software and the general use and collection of data within the city, GeekWire reports. The resolution includes a set of privacy and information principles that will aid decision making related to tech and data. A highlight among the principles is a list of suggested approaches for assessing the impacts of automated decision systems that use artificial intelligence or algorithmic models. Facial recognition remains the main target of the resolution and its principles. "City use of facial recognition technologies is likely going to be an early policy conversation given recent media attention, community concerns, and related policies moving forward in other cities," said Hector Dominguez, open data coordinator at the City of Portland’s SmartCityPDX group.
