Facial Recognition in Europe: A Battle Between Privacy and Surveillance

By: Jack VernonSenior Research Analyst, European AI Systems


This IDC Market Perspective looks at how facial recognition deployments across Western Europe and how different legislative bodies are looking to deal with the technology. The pressure is growing on the European Union to implement controls around the use of facial recognition technology; this will have a significant impact on both vendors and end users of facial recognition systems.

"The European Union is preparing to govern the use of facial recognition technology. Decisions made in the upcoming quarters could dramatically shape how facial recognition systems can be deployed and used in Western Europe. Businesses involved in either purchasing or supplying facial recognition systems need to seriously consider the type of legislation that might be introduced and how this would impact their strategies," said Jack Vernon, senior research analyst, European AI Systems.
