We were happy to hear that this conference took place and this issue is being taken seriously by a panel of acedemic professionals as well as the business's that evolve the technology. As a family we have talked about the issue of facial recognition as the social media they use incorporates this technology. We are concerned about the usage of the technology in our everyday life. One could argue this could spiral out of control given the ideal conditions. We feel confident that regulation of some sort would be required to protect the American Citizens. Do the pro's outweight the con's? How can we make sure that we were not being taken advantage of by marketing schemes, etc.? Many questions need to be answered still, please be diligent with the quest for freedom and eqaulity for all.
