To all our community members:
We are very excited to announce the launch of Project Panoptic, India’s first Facial Recognitions Technology systems tracker, which aims to bring transparency and demand accountability from the government stakeholders involved in the deployment and implementation of FRT projects in India.
The online platform will display information gathered and collected on various FRT projects across each state in India. This includes data points relating to the procurement, implementation and use of FRT projects by the Central Government, State Governments and various other public authorities in the country. Project Panoptic is the first of its kind in India, and is dedicated to combating surveillance issues related to the rise of FRTs.
In support of the launch of the project, IFF is hosting a digital event, “Project Panoptic: Should India Ban Harmful Facial Recognition Systems?”. We hope you will be able to attend and will be grateful if you can share the event in your networks.
