Study of facial recognition software conducted by Jyo Buolamwini at the MIT Media Lab finds that the darker the skin of the subject the more errors arise - up to 35% for darker-skinned women. At Georgetown Law School, researchers estimate that 117 million American adults are in face recognition networks used by law enforcement. African-Americans are disproportionately represented in mugshot databases.
