Swedish Data Inspectorate investigates Clearview AI

Swedish supervisory authority – Datainspektionen – is conducting an investigation on possible use of facial recognition technology provided by US company Clearview AI by Swedish authorities.

Datainspektionen sent a number of questions to the Police, the Security Police, the Coast Guard, the Customs Administration, the Migration Agency and a number of other Swedish authorities. They want to know if any of the authorities are using Clearview AI and in such cases what legal basis they rely on.
