Controversial facial recognition company, Clearview AI, is reportedly developing surveillance cameras and augmented reality glasses despite mounting public scrutiny over the company’s ethics.
According to documents obtained by Buzzfeed News, Clearview AI is exploring the possibility of making surveillance cameras that use computer vision software to identify subjects by cross-referencing a database.
Its database of photos has been the subject of controversy after it was found to be scraping pictures from Facebook and Instagram without people’s consent. Those pictures were used to train its facial recognition algorithm.
The company has also partnered with at least 600 law enforcement agencies across the US. Those companies use its database to scan for suspect matches.
Clearview’s cameras are reportedly being tested by two companies and are being developed under a division of Clearview called Insight Camera.
