DGN Policy Brief 05 - Facial Recognition

The widespread adoption of facial recognition technologies (FRTs) by the public and private sectors, without any meaningful debate or regulation, raises a number of concerns. Any adoption of this technology has to be preceded by a meaningful suitability and proportionality analysis, taking into account the concerns of accuracy, reliability, privacy, transparency and bias as well as the need for appropriate procedural safeguards.
