AI, The Algorithms and Facial Recognition

Clearview AI Chief Executive Hoan Ton-That told Reuters in an exclusive interview that the company is looking to close its first large contracts with federal agencies this year and grow its workforce by a third, even as it faces criticism for its facial recognition technology from lawmakers and the courts. Ton-That also revealed for the first time that Pennsylvania-based scientist Terence Liu is behind some of Clearview’s algorithms and is the company’s vice president of research, having previously been secretive about its technology team.
