HRBDT Public Panel Discussion: “Facial Recognition and Human Rights” 10 September 2019

On 10 September the Human Rights, Big Data and Technology Project hosted a panel discussion at The Royal Society on “Facial Recognition and Human Rights”.  The panel members included Clare Garvie (Georgetown University Law Centre); Professor Pete Fussey (University of Essex), Dr Daragh Murray (University of Essex) and Reema Patel (Ada Lovelace Institute).

This public event brought together leading experts on the use of facial recognition, including those with direct and in-depth experience of its use in the UK and the US. The panelists discussed operational aspects of the technology and how it may impact police performance, they examined the human rights implications, and considered if and how this technology can be regulated.

A recording of the event is available below.
