Inside the AI Act

A critical perspective on facial recognition technology

In a time where the debate around the influence of AI is gaining traction by the day, it is pivotal to assess its role in shaping our everyday lives. This webinar will center around AI and facial recognition.

The EU AI Act, a proposed regulation of general-purpose AI and foundational models like ChatGPT, is expected to be the world’s first rules on Artificial Intelligence. Kick-started by the European Commission in April 2021, earlier this month MEPs have adopted Parliaments negotiating position on the Act. Talks will now begin with EU countries in the Council on the final version of the law. Adopting a risk-based approach to AI, the AI Act bans, among others, real-time and remote biometric identification systems, such as facial recognition.
