[Docket No. DHS–2021–0015]
Public Perceptions of Emerging
Technology
AGENCY
: Science and Technology
Directorate (S&T), Department of
Homeland Security (DHS).
ACTION
: 30-Day Notice of Information
Collection; New request for comment,
1640–NEW.
SUMMARY
: DHS S&T will submit the
following Information Collection
Request (ICR) to the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) for
review and clearance in accordance
with the Paperwork Reduction Act of
1995. The survey will collect
information from the public regarding
applications of artificial intelligence
(AI), including facial recognition. DHS
has already used or piloted AI-based
technologies in several of its key
functions, including customs and border
protection, transportation security, and
investigations. However, AI in general
and facial recognition in particular are
not without public controversy,
including concerns about bias, security,
and privacy. Therefore, understanding
how the public perceives these
technologies, and then designing and
deploying them in a manner responsive
to the public’s concerns, is critical in
gaining public support for DHS’s use of
these technologies.
DATES
: Comments are encouraged and
accepted until December 6, 2021.
ADDRESSES

invited to submit written comments on
this proposed information collection to
