Recently, IBM also said it would no longer pursue the development, research or offering of facial recognition and analysis software, with a letter from the company’s CEO to the United States Congress saying: “IBM firmly opposes and will not condone uses of any technology, including facial recognition technology offered by other vendors, for mass surveillance, racial profiling, violations of basic human rights and freedoms, or any purpose which is not consistent with our values and Principles of Trust and Transparency.”
