California [USA], April 17 (ANI): Microsoft reportedly decided not to sell its facial recognition technology to law enforcement agency in California, over privacy concerns.

An unnamed agency wanted to install the technology in officers' cars and body cameras and run face scans on anyone they pulled over, however, Microsoft believes it would have likely resulted in innocent women and minorities being held for questioning more often, Cnet reports.

The reason is the biased artificial intelligence (AI) of the technology that had been primarily trained on white men, resulting in more instances of mistaken identity. (ANI)
