FACE RECOGNITION
A British Court of Appeal says that police violated human rights laws in using facial recognition technology. Britain’s Court of Appeal ruled in the case of civil rights campaigner Ed Bridges, who argued that South Wales Police caused him “distress,’’ by scanning his face as he shopped in 2017 and as he attended a peaceful anti-arms protest in 2018. Human rights advocates praised Tuesday’s decision as a victory against invasive practices by the authorities.
