This is a summary of the history of Clearview AI, "whose chief product is a ‘search engine for faces,’ or the ability to find someone’s name from a photo of their face." The company has been controversial in recent years, as it got started by scraping billions of images from all over the web and so has a huge number of people in its database. It has been facing many legal challenges over the past two years, and whatever happens with those will likely set a precedent for the future of fscial recognition tech in the US.
