EU Considering a 5-Year Ban on Facial Recognition

The Infinite Brief
The EU may impose a temporary ban on facial recognition technologies used by both public and private actors, according to a draft European Commission white paper on artificial intelligence.

The document states that a future regulatory framework could “include a time-limited ban on the use of facial recognition technology in public spaces.”

It adds that a prohibition lasting between 3 and 5 years would allow the EC to come up with a “sound methodology for assessing the impacts of this technology and possible risk management measures.”

However, the report adds that if the plans are implemented, several current AI projects proposed by EU countries could be thrown off course.
