Retail giant Amazon has announced that it will place a one-year moratorium on the use of its facial recognition technology by police in the wake of protests in the US over the killing of George Floyd, an African-American man, in Minneapolis.
A court in the US has agreed to a request from Amazon to stop Microsoft and the Department of Defence from continuing to work on implementing a US$10 billion cloud deal that was awarded to the Redmond software giant in October last year, Reuters reported.
The US Department of Defence has awarded a US$10 billion 10-year cloud deal to Microsoft ahead of Amazon, with the latter firm having been favoured to get the contract. The contract runs until 24 October 2029.
