We’re not knee-jerk against face recognition technology – it’s here to stay, and we need to explore how it can work for human rights. But we are very concerned that legislators and regulators have been so slow on the uptake – and that technology companies have been reluctant to participate in genuine public debate on a technology from which there really is no turning-back. We can – and must – all do better to make the best of this powerful new technology – and to protect us all from the worst.

My new post for WITNESS on the ethics of facial recognition technology. Go on, you know you want to.
