Calls for crackdown on facial recognition technology
A new model law has been proposed to regulate facial recognition technology in Australia.
The Human Technology Institute has proposed rules that would impose new obligations on companies developing the technology and any entity deploying them.
UTS’ Human Technology Institute Projects Manager of Responsible Technology Lauren Perry told Joe Hildebrand the model laws target different situations where the technology is used.
“Consent would be a big part of working out how risky a piece of facial recognition can be.”
Ms Perry says most Australians are surprised to hear there are no current laws specifically regulating facial recognition technology.
