The European Parliament would ban automated facial recognition

After several EU professional and advocacy organizations, this time the European Parliament also expressed its views on the role of artificial intelligence in facial recognition systems used in public places. The so-called non-binding declaration of EU legislation was supported by MEPs in a proportion of 377-248 with 62 abstentions.

Among other things, the statement draws the attention of the Commission and the Member States to the fact that artificial intelligence algorithms are coded for error and can only be used to analyze images captured by camera surveillance systems under strict supervision with appropriate legal safeguards.

According to MEPs, in many cases it has been shown that these algorithms are far from infallible, but the rate of misconceptions can vary depending on, among other things, demographic group and gender, which leads directly to discrimination.

According to the Members’ resolution, the use of such tools can only be legal for criminal suspects, and private databases and inference systems based on past patterns of behavior and profiling by artificial intelligence should be treated as completely taboo, according to the European Parliament.

This summer, two EU data protection institutions, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) and the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS), also issued a joint resolution, which essentially set out the principles and objectives that the EP has just published. Prior to the position of professional organizations and the legislature, in April this year, the Commission adopted a new MI regulation aimed at dispelling all mistrust associated with the use of artificial intelligence while making the use of such systems safer.
