European Commission mulls temporary ban on use of facial recognition technology

The European Commission is considering a temporary ban on the use of facial recognition technology as it seeks more time to work out how to regulate the technology, Euractiv reported, citing a draft white paper.

The commission paper suggests that a ban on the use of facial recognition technology by private or public actors may last three to five years. The document stipulates that exceptions to the ban could be made for security projects as well as research and development.

The white paper also includes regulatory options for artificial intelligence, including voluntary labeling; sector-specific requirements for public administration and facial recognition; mandatory risk-based requirements for high-risk applications; safety and liability; and governance.

If implemented, the temporary ban would allow EU officials to work on "a sound methodology for assessing the impacts of this technology, and possible risk management measures could be identified and developed."

A potential ban on the use of facial recognition technology may throw off current AI projects across EU countries, the report noted.
