Many databases of facial images are compiled by companies and researchers without the knowledge of the owners of those faces.
Privacy advocates have observed that repositories of facial images assembled by Microsoft, Stanford niversity, and others hold millions of images.
Facebook and Google, likely to have amassed the largest facial datasets, purportedly do not distribute their image troves, but academics, activists, and public papers demonstrate that other organizations have shared theirs with researchers, governments, and private enterprises in Australia, China, India, Singapore, and Switzerland for training artificial intelligence.
However, there are concerns that technologies enabled by these datasets are being used in potentially invasive ways, such as when recently released documents showed Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials scanned motorists’ photos with facial recognition technology to identify undocumented immigrants.
