Microsoft sells stake in Israeli facial recognition company
From the article:
“Holder and his team at the law firm Covington & Burling conducted an audit of AnyVision starting in October 2019 after NBC News and other news outlets including Forbes and Israeli business publication TheMarker reported that the facial recognition startup was surveilling Palestinians throughout the West Bank.”
Microsoft needs to be commended for taking an ethical stance in these times of rampant circumventing of human rights to privacy by the major technology players.
“The Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) calls for boycotting AnyVision, Israel’s facial recognition technology firm, due to its irrefutable complicity in Israel’s occupation and repression of Palestinians.”
