Uncovering the Injustice: Rite Aid’s Facial Recognition Lawsuit
In a groundbreaking development, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has proposed a five-year ban on Rite Aid’s use of facial recognition software in its drugstores. From 2012 to 2020, the allegations suggest that Rite Aid’s deployment of facial recognition technology in hundreds of retail pharmacies resulted in numerous false-positive matches. The consequences were severe, with shoppers being mistakenly flagged as persons of interest, leading to detainment, increased surveillance, public accusations, police involvement, and even bans from Rite Aid stores. The FTC further revealed that Rite Aid’s facial recognition technology exhibited a disturbing pattern, generating more false positives in neighborhoods with predominantly Black and Asian populations. This unsettling revelation underscores the potential racial bias embedded in the technology.
