Commission will ‘not exclude’ potential ban on facial recognition technology

The European Commission has not ruled out a future ban on the use of facial recognition technology in Europe, as the EU executive mulls the findings of a recent public consultation on Artificial Intelligence.

Speaking to MEPs on the European Parliament’s Internal Market Committee on 3 September, Kilian Gross of the Commission’s DG Connect said that all options were still on the table.

Should a potential ban on facial recognition technologies in public places ever manifest in the EU, it would provide clarity on an issue long debated by the Commission.
