Legislators in Connecticut recently stepped back from a bill that would have prohibited using facial recognition technology commercially unless consumers give prior consent, which would have severely curtailed deployment. Listening to reason, lawmakers revised the bill to simply require that retailers post signs when the technology is in use. Daniel Castro writes in Government Technology that this should serve as a model as lawmakers consider regulating other emerging technologies.
