Investigation documents large use of Clearview AI software by U.S. law enforcements

According to data reviewed by BuzzFeed News, more than 7,000 individuals from nearly 2,000 public agencies in the United-States have used Clearview AI to search through millions of pictures, looking for particular individuals, including Black Lives Matter protesters, criminals, and their own friends and family members. BuzzFeed News has developed a searchable table of publicly funded agencies whose employees are listed in the data as having used or tested the software, including local and state police, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Air Force, state healthcare organizations, offices of state attorneys general, and even public schools.
