Clearview AI has announced that its facial recognition software, Clearview 2.0, now features 20 billion publicly available facial images. According to reports, the images include photos of suspects, persons of interest and potential victims. Clearview AI has come under scrutiny because its software has misidentified people, particularly persons of colour, and it was fined £17 million by the ICO in November 2021 and €20 million by the Italian DPA in March this year.
