Episode 4 speaker Avi Gesser co-authored a piece with Debevoise colleagues in October 2021 entitled “Face Forward Part 2: Proposed Legislation and Strategies for Compliant Use of Facial Recognition”.  The piece states, among other things:

“Our focus here is the United States, but we will briefly and uncomprehensively address Europe.  Per our recent post, the European Commission’s draft regulation on artificial intelligence (AI) proposes to ban not only all ‘real-time’ remote biometric identification systems used by law enforcement in public places – including facial recognition – but would also impose stringent requirements on both ‘real-time’ and post hoc remote biometric identification systems (including those used by private entities).”


The piece also discusses several strategies for use of facial recognition.
