New York temporarily bans facial recognition in schools

New York suspended the use of facial recognition in schools, as Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday signed a bill that bans biometric tech in schools until July 2022. It directs the state to study whether its use is appropriate in schools, and issue recommendations.

New York is the first state to ban the tech’s use in public and private schools, Forbes noted. The legislation focuses on the tech’s replication of biases based on race and gender.
