CINA Distinguished Speaker Series: Arun Ross – “Privacy in the era of automated face recognition”
September 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Tune in on Thursday, September 22nd at 12:00 p.m. when Arun Ross, Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University and the Director of the i-PRoBe Lab will talk about privacy implications of automated face recognition (AFR) technology. Ross will describe the auxiliary information that can be extracted from face images and the ability to link disparate face images using AFR, thereby divulging the identity of individuals in applications where anonymity is expected. The purpose of this talk is to help explore the boundaries of this powerful technology as it intersects with societal expectations and perceptions on one hand, and the need for reliable human identification technology on the other hand.
This event will take place virtually via Zoom. The information to attend virtually will be sent to participants upon registering.
