A survey conducted by the Center for Data Innovation found only one in four Americans believes the government should strictly limit the use of facial-recognition technology and fewer than one in five if it would come at the expense of public safety. Similarly, 54 percent said they would disagree with limits on government use of facial recognition during airport screening. Nextgov reports CDI Director Daniel Castro said, "Americans have made it clear they do not want regulations that limit the use of facial recognition if it comes at the cost of public safety." A 2018 study from the Brookings Institution found half of Americans favored limits on the use of facial recognition by law enforcement. Editor's Note: Kate Kaye wrote about NIST's facial-recognition accuracy test in a recent post for Privacy Tech.
