Facial recognition, discrimination and law – Biometrics regulation in the UE proposal of regulation of AI, and deepfake regulation proposals in US and China
The issues of discrimination and false are very important topics for jurists when related to facial recognition, artificial intelligence, and deep fakes.
The risk of such technologies being used to violate citizens’ rights and freedoms is very high. At the same time, law enforcement and many governments are very interested in the use of recognition systems, even in public places, to maintain order.
The deep fake, for its part, has also proven to be a tool of information warfare and violation of data protection of individuals and, in particular, women’s rights (deep nude).
In this lecture we will draw an overview of the International legal framework on these issues, focusing on:
(i) the proposed EU regulation on artificial intelligence.
(ii) the proposed U.S. regulations on deep fakes.
(iii) the Chinese regulatory proposals on deep fakes.
(iv) the controversies related to facial recognition in cities (especially in US and UK)
v) the numerous cases of discrimination already generated by artificial intelligence systems in the areas of health, education, labor, and administration of justice (especially criminal justice).
