📰 Krewe News

RIP Chuck Kindleberger

I expected an obituary from someone at this point, but I will update this when I get one. I worked with Chuck back in the day of his magnificent office. I haven’t seen him in a while, but he will always be considered Krewe.

Happy Birthday, Greg!

We could easily be the Hermit Bros.

Clearview AI CEO says ‘over 2,400 police agencies’ are using its facial recognition software

Clearview AI CEO says ‘over 2,400 police agencies’ are using its facial recognition software

More than 2,400 police agencies have entered contracts with Clearview AI, a controversial facial recognition firm, according to comments made by Clearview AI CEO Hoan Ton-That in an interview with Jason Calacanis on YouTube.

The interview was taped in May, but Calacanis didn’t release it until today. That’s because it took place the morning after George Floyd was killed by police. “Once the protests started in America, and we were watching these anti-racism protesters, we decided we might hold the interview because it didn’t feel like the right time,” Calacanis says in the video. “Maybe things would settle down and people could think about the software as something that could theoretically help police departments as opposed to help them do something like identify peaceful protesters.”
