Microsoft President Brad Smith says the company does not sell facial recognition software to police departments in the U.S. today and will not sell the tools to police until there is a national law in place “grounded in human rights.” He called for a national law to regulate facial recognition technology saying, "We need Congress to act, not just tech companies alone, that is the only way that we will guarantee that we will protect the lives of people."
