Great reporting from @adrs on this topic. I have mixed feelings on the issue. Safety versus privacy is always a spicy meatball. Why not use metal detectors?

So sad that the fundraising for the clinical trials falls onto the family but it’s nice that the technology is available for them to help their son

Presumably Google has lots of data on white people's faces; that's why there's a data gap. So I wonder how they got that data, and whether the process was markedly different than the one used here, which I agree was not good. If the process was different (e.g. more transparent for white people), that is certainly an additional problem. If it was the same, then can we say that the project was wrong from the beginning? Or given the history, would it still be fundamentally different to use these tactics on marginalized people?
