Facebook facial recognition technology facing lawsuit in US
17 April, 2018, 15:44 | Author: Regina Silva
The ruling adds to the privacy woes mounting against Facebook over recent weeks, following disclosures that the personal information of millions of users was harvested by political consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica. The company also tried and failed to claim that the data it collects isn't covered by BIPA, which restricts the collection of fingerprints, voice prints, and "hand or face geometry".
The lawsuit say the "tag suggestions" technology, which is employed to identify a user's friend in an uploaded photo breaches state law of IL.
Carolina Milanesi, the author of the study, found that when asked on how Facebook can regain user trust, rather than getting more tools and settings, a lot of the users are asking for the company's transparency.
Facebook said the case has no merit.
The facial recognition feature isn't now available in the UK. But despite Facebook's success in getting the case moved from IL to San Francisco, the judge ruled that "plaintiffs' claims are sufficiently cohesive to allow for a fair and efficient resolution on a class basis".
This is not the first time Facebook has been under fire for their facial recognition technology. The complaint was filed by Frederick William Gullen of IL.
