About the event

This seminar is being delivered via webinar.

Facial recognition technology has been increasing in prevalence and notoriety in Australia, and internationally. Facial recognition technology has been used, or predicted to be used, in policing, border security, shops, pubs, casinos and schools. Facial recognition technology is subject to privacy laws, but the scope and application of the Privacy Act in this context is uncertain. Additionally, facial recognition technology has been challenged as biased and inaccurate. A model law taking into account human rights considerations raised by the technology has been proposed by a team led by the former human rights commissioner Ed Santow. In the EU there are proposals to ban facial recognition technology for most purposes in public places and place restrictions on its use in private spaces.

This seminar will cover:

  1. the technology that informs facial recognition, and key use cases;
  2. the uncertainties around the application of the Privacy Act to facial recognition technology; and
  3. relevant law reform proposals for responding to concerns about the privacy, surveillance, and discrimination harms of facial recognition technology.
