(Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:) shareholders rejected proposals to curb and audit the company’s facial recognition service, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday.
The first proposal would have called on Amazon to stop offering facial recognition to governments unless its board determined sales did not violate civil liberties. A second would have requested a study by September of the extent to which Amazon’s service, known as Rekognition, harmed rights and privacy.
