Comments by Homo Digitalis to the Council of Europe for the use of facial recognition technology
On Friday September 4th, Homo Digitalis submitted its written proposals to the Data Protection Committee of the Council of Europe concerning the draft Guidelines it had issued in early June regarding the use of facial recognition technologies.
With its written proposals Homo Digitalis focuses on 3 different topics, namely the relevant databases, impact assessment, and the principles of necessity and proportionality. Also, by submitting our proposals, we explicitly support the views and ideas submitted by the partner organizations Access Now and European Digital Rights (EDRi).

We remind you that our organization is one out of 10 civil society organizations to have an observer position in the Ad Hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence of the Council of Europe (CAHAI)
