A lawsuit is taking aim at Clearview AI, a controversial facial recognition app being used by US law enforcement to identify suspects and other people. The app is under fire after a New York Times investigation into the software company earlier this week. The app identifies people by and other sites, and then sells the info to law enforcement agencies.
“The conduct of Defendant Clearview, as alleged herein, epitomizes the insidious encroachment on an individual’s liberty,” says the complaint, reported earlier Friday by CNET sister site ZDNet. It alleges Clearview AI “acted out of pure greed.”
