Amazon is instituting a one-year moratorium on police use of Rekognition, its facial recognition software, the company announced on Wednesday.

亚马逊(Amazon)周三宣布:将暂停警方一年内使用其面部识别软件”Rekognition”。

“We’ve advocated that governments should put in place stronger regulations to govern the ethical use of facial recognition technology,” Amazon wrote in its blog post announcing the change. “Congress appears ready to take on this challenge. We hope this one-year moratorium might give Congress enough time to implement appropriate rules.”

亚马逊在其博客中宣布了这一变化,并写道:“我们主张各国政府应该出台更有力的法规,规范面部识别技术的道德使用,而且国会似乎已经准备好迎接这一挑战,我们希望这一年的暂缓令能给国会足够的时间来实施适当的规定。”

Amazon says that groups like the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children will continue to have access to the technology.

亚马逊表示,国际失踪和受剥削儿童中心等组织将继续使用这项技术。
