"The Root has published numerous stories demonstrating how voice and facial recognition software often leads to racial bias. We’ve reported stories that show Black people are found to be more vulnerable to being misidentified by this technology than our white counterparts. Despite this, many companies and law enforcement agencies continue to use technology that allows machines to unilaterally identify human beings—because what can go wrong, amirite?
Recently, a Black teenager was removed and banned from a Livonia, Mich. skating rink. The teen and her parents say the business’ facial recognition software mistook her for another Black girl who had gotten into a brawl there prior to the incident. Not only was the teen not involved in the fight, according to the family, but she had never even been to that particular rink before."
