Amazon, meanwhile, is offering free consulting services to build a proof-of-concept implementation of Rekognition for Orlando police. The ACLU and more than two dozen other civil rights organizations called on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to stop selling face-recognition services to government agencies. Amazon Rekognition is a technology that helps automate recognizing people, objects, and activities in video and photos based on inputs provided by the customer. And the utility of AI services like this will only increase as more companies start using advanced technologies like Amazon Rekognition. Like any of our AWS services, we require our customers to comply with the law and be responsible when using Amazon Rekognition.
