Retail giant Amazon has announced that it will place a one-year moratorium on the use of its facial recognition technology by police in the wake of protests in the US over the killing of George Floyd, an African-American man, in Minneapolis.
An anonymous Amazon employee has called on the company's leadership to stop selling its facial recognition software, Rekognition, to law enforcement bodies in the US because it "runs counter to Amazon's stated values".
Amazon's face surveillance technology, Rekognition, failed to identify 28 current US politicians, instead labelling them as people who had been arrested for crimes.
Workers at retail giant Amazon have written to chief executive Jeff Bezos, telling him not to sell Rekognition facial recognition software to law enforcement agencies and to cancel the contract for hosting data-mining company Palantir on its cloud.
