Ian Forrester over at Cubic Garden has submitted a GDPR request to ClearView AI, the alt-right linked company that is hawking their facial recognition database (based on scraped online images) to law enforcement as well as commercial outfits. Should be interesting to follow along. Recently IBM stopped facial recognition work (they previously showed not being up to speed with CC licensing it seemed to me), and others like Amazon and MicroSoft did too when it comes to law enforcement. Facial recognition is extremely sensitive to bias.
