Facial recognition
Facial recognition
 Advances in the development of artificial intelligence (in particular deep learning) have led to significant improvements in the per-formance of facial recognition tools. They now seem to be within everyone's reach: smartphone applications, automated payments, identity checks at borders etc.  Often little known to the public, an extensive economy is develo-ping around the use of this data, giving rise to concerns about how such applications could infringe on fundamental freedoms.  It seems necessary to develop a legislative framework for experi-mentation in order to test these systems under real conditions and ensure our sovereignty, so that we are not dependent on solutions developed by the tech giants, then to establish a regulatory framework that best suits uses.
