The challenge for lawmakers will be figuring out appropriate constraints that won’t sideline the technology’s development, said Christian Troncoso, policy director at software industry association BSA, whose members include Microsoft, Apple Inc. and International Business Machines Corp. “Facial-recognition technology is the next frontier in the privacy conversation, and what we’re seeing is an effort by states to get their arms around the issue,” he said.
BSA | The Software Alliance (www.bsa.org) is the leading advocate for the global software industry before governments and in the international marketplace. Its members are among the world’s most innovative companies, creating software solutions that spark the economy and improve modern life.
