Is the integration of a tool such as Clearview AI possible in France? – Mathilde Gérot

By Mathilde Gérot

Senior Associate Mathilde Gérot discusses the challenges regarding the growth of the Clearview AI application and the new threat to privacy, in Le Monde du Droit.

Clearview AI, a facial recognition app, has been sold to almost 600 police services in the United States as well as private security companies for the purpose of investigations. The app allows users to take a picture of a person, upload it and have access to public photos of that person, along with links to where those photos appeared.

Mathilde examines how Europe seems better equipped than the US to integrate the use of facial recognition for the purpose of identifying a person.
