California's Senate may ban facial recognition tech in police body cameras

The state of California's legislature is considering a new bill that would ban the use of facial recognition technology in police body cameras, according to CNBC . The proposal, which has already passed the state Assembly and now awaits a vote from the Senate, would follow in the footsteps of the city of San Francisco, which took action to forbid government agencies from adopting facial recognition software earlier this month.
