The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights has released a paper on the use of facial-recognition technology by law enforcement. The report covers the rights affected by the deployment of the technology for criminal investigations and border-management purposes. The document also looks at the accuracy of facial recognition and what steps can be taken to avoid rights violations. "Although the accuracy of matches is improving, the risk of errors remains real — particularly for certain minority groups," the report states. "Moreover, people whose images are captured and processed might not know this is happening — and so cannot challenge possible misuses."
