Amazon investors want it to quit selling facial-recognition tech to the government
Amazon investors are urging the company to halt sales of its facial-recognition software to government agencies over fears the technology could be used to violate people's rights. In a resolution filed Thursday, a group of shareholders asked Amazon's board to stop selling its tool, Rekognition, to governments unless a third-party evaluation determines it "does not cause or contribute to actual or potential violations of civil and human rights."
