The rapid improvements in the accuracy of facial recognition technology over the past few years has opened up many opportunities for commercial use of the technology. Airlines are using facial recognition technology to expedite boarding, luxury apartment buildings are using facial recognition technology to eliminate the need for residents to carry keys, and the hospitality industry is using facial recognition technology to improve customer service. As the technology continues to mature, many different sectors will likely integrate the technology from retail to healthcare to financial services.

How can industry leaders and policymakers promote the adoption and use of this technology in responsible ways? Join ITIF for a conversation about the potential applications of facial recognition technology, industry best practices in the use of the technology, and policies that spur innovation and deployment while preserving privacy and security.

The event will be live streamed here.
