Facial recognition should be used responsibly! A coalition of fifty-five investors, managing 4.500 billion dollars in assets, led by the asset management company Candriam AM, is concerned about the excesses of this technology which allows access control and the identification of people. Misused, it risks seriously infringing human rights.
Already in 2021, this coalition, including Aviva Investors, Domini Impact Investments, Robecco and Sycomore, called on companies involved in the development of facial recognition to be ethical. This year, she is again sounding the alarm bell because she has realized that very few players involved in this technology ensure that it is used responsibly .
