Portland, Oregon is considering banning facial recognition, with city officials planning on meeting to discuss banning “Smart City” technology, a news report reveals.
Technology falling within the ban would include traffic monitoring and identification tools used by city employees and the police department.
Recently, the technology has come under fire for allegedly misidentifying individuals. In May, San Francisco, Calif. became the first city in the United States to ban facial recognition, and many other cities have since implemented similar restrictions.
