Algorithm bias

Kairos, the Miami based face recognition provider who gained global attention in 2018 for its early stance to highlight algorithm bias in face recognition systems, has brought back Brian Brackeen, the founder of the company who in the same year was separated from his position as CEO preceding a legal battle which ended in Brackeen’s favor.


Since the departure of all employees and board members involved in the 2018 disruption, Kairos’ new leadership has voted to bring Brackeen and his expertise in algorithmic bias back to the company to chair its Scientific Advisory Board, where he will continue his work with the company to address and eliminate racial bias from the technology.

Biometric Summit New York 2019

Last week I attended the 2nd Annual Biometric Summit in New York City. It was hosted at a cool co-working space called “Rise” that’s sponsored by Barclays Bank and TechStars incubator. It was one of the smaller summits I have attended, with a single track and about 100 attendees—ranging from biometric vendors and end-users to analysts (? Alan Goode) and investors.


Personally, I appreciated the coziness, which made for some insightful networking opportunities and high-quality sessions. I left with plenty to think about on my trip back to Boston, so here are my takeaways from the Biometric Summit 2019:
