Amazon Investors Push to Halt Use of Facial Recognition Software

At Amazon's annual shareholder meeting this spring, a group of investors will be asking the tech giant to halt all governments sales of its proprietary facial recognition technology, known as Rekognition. The software, which scans faces and can read human emotions, tells the government "who we are, what we are, what we're doing, and who we're doing it with," said Michael Connor, the executive director of corporate accountability non-profit Open Mic.
