Apple’s Face Recognition Software Leads to Wrongful Arrests, Lawsuit

Eighteen year old Ousmane Bah has sued Apple after he was falsely accused of felonies in multiple states, including Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Delaware. The arrests allegedly resulted from Bah’s image being mismatched to the identity of the true suspect through facial recognition software used in Apple’s retail stores. Apparently, the true suspect had presented Bah’s interim driving permit (that didn’t include a photo) as identification during one of the crimes.
