Renaissance Numérique advocates for the creation a strong EU-level standardisation system for facial recognition technologies25 June 2020
The recent multiplication of experimentations and use cases of facial recognition technologies across Europe and in the world does indeed question the framework within which these devices – which are particularly intrusive and could potentially harm our civil liberties – develop.
- Facial recognition technologies: probabilistic tools that process sensitive data.
- The legal framework surrounding facial recognition technologies in Europe is relatively comprehensive, but its application is fragmented and inefficient.
- Faced with the predominance of the United States and in order to guarantee its citizens’ fundamental rights and freedoms, the European Union needs a robust European standardization system for facial recognition technologies.
