The European Union May Ban Facial Recognition For 5-Year Review Of Tech

by Aaron Kesel, Activist Post:

The European Union is considering banning facial recognition technology which has raised massive privacy concerns over the years since its inception, risking us walking into George Orwell’s nightmare 1984.

The European Commission is considering a ban on all facial recognition technology in public places for three to five years, the BBC reported.

The Commission  hopes to examine the technology during these years with “a sound methodology for assessing the impacts of this technology and possible risk management measures could be identified and developed,” the EC’s 18-page white paper on facial recognition writes.
