Interrogating publicly available facial recognition training datasets
MegaPixels is an art and research project that investigates the ethics, origins, and individual privacy implications of face recognition image datasets and their role in the expansion of biometric surveillance technologies.
Throughout 2019 the MegaPixels site will publish research reports, visualizations, downloadable statistics, and interactive tools to understand how these datasets contribute to a global supply chain of biometric data that is powering the global facial recognition industry.
MegaPixels is developed by Adam Harvey and Jules LaPlace.
