Nevada City Rotary was delighted to extend a warm welcome to Rotary Global Scholar, Evani Radiya-Dixit and her parents on Thursday August 25.  
Evani presented an inspiring overview of her year in Cambridge conducting research at the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy at the University of Cambridge as a Rotary Global Scholar.  Her focus was the ethical use of facial recognition technologies. 
Evani reaffirmed that her research aligns with Rotary's work in peacebuilding and conflict prevention by revealing the risks and harms of facial recognition and by informing tech policy in a manner that mitigates discrimination and promotes peace.
Evani was sponsored by District 5190, Nevada City Rotary and Grass Valley Rotary. She was hosted in the UK by Cambridge Sawston Rotary Club.
We congratulate and salute Evani for her critical leading edge facial recognition research and ethical policy development work.
