Google tells facial recognition startup Clearview AI to stop scraping photos

Following Twitter, Google and YouTube have become the latest companies to send a cease-and-desist letter to Clearview AI, the startup behind a controversial facial recognition program that more than 600 police departments across North American use.

Google has demanded Clearview stop scraping YouTube videos for its database, as well as delete any photos it has already collected. “Clearview secretly collected image data of individuals without their consent, and in violation of rules explicitly forbidding them from doing so,” Google said.
