Thursday, Google said it would hold off on releasing facial recognition technology as part of its commitment to the responsible use of artificial intelligence. “Unlike some other companies, Google Cloud has chosen not to offer general-purpose facial recognition APIs before working through important technology and policy questions,” said Kent Walker, Google’s senior vice president of global affairs, in a blog post about Google’s AI efforts in Asia. He might have been referring to Amazon, which this week made news for a couple of facial recognition developments.
