Event description
We're looking to bring together young people of colour to discuss the pros and cons of police-use of facial recognition technology.

About this Event

The Metropolitan Police have begun deploying controversial facial recognition cameras across London. Future Advocacy, a think tank focused on artificial intelligence and emerging technologies, is currently exploring the potential implications this may have for people of colour and religious minorities. Studies have found that facial recognition technology can often result in discriminatory outcomes for individuals with darker skin.

As part of our research, we are looking to bring together young people of colour at a workshop in East London to discuss their views on the technology. It will be an informal event and refreshments will be provided (including pizza).

The workshop will be taking place at Newspeak House in East London on Monday 30th of March.

For any questions, please feel free to get in touch with Areeq Chowdhury at areeqchowdhury@futureadvocacy.org.

This project is being supported by the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust.

Information you provide on this form will be used purely for the purpose of this event and will be deleted from our records following the close of the project.
