Technology and Faces – level 1

03-10-2019 07:00

There is technology which can identify human faces. It is controversial. Many people do not like it. The technology can make problems for people.

Amazon wants new laws for this technology. The leader of Amazon says that this technology can be very good for people. However, he also says that it can be dangerous.

People in Amazon write a special document about some of the problems.  They want the technology to be safe for people. They want it to be transparent.

Difficult words: identify (say who someone is), controversial (when people have very different opinions about something), transparent (understandable).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
