Legal Implications in AI: The Case of Clearview

Season 4: Episode 3

Today we’re exploring the story of Clearview AI, a private company that has developed facial recognition software, sold it to law enforcement, and is now in the process of getting sued by a community of activists who allege that they are being illegally identified at protests.

And how will a ruling on this case affect the many current and ongoing debates about privacy, surveillance, and the exploitation of our personal data?
