Employers are increasingly turning to software to monitor employees remotely, raising concerns among some privacy advocates.
A new report claims AI-powered cameras in Amazon’s delivery vans have unfairly penalized drivers. The article found that drivers suffered from erroneous alerts, incorrect driver scorecards, impractical traffic condition assumptions, and drivers adopting practices to circumvent the technology.
