La reconnaissance faciale dans la mire du FTC

En juin dernier, Facebook a rendu accessible la reconnaissance faciale à tous les amis du réseau social. Des voix se sont élevées (billet) et la Federal Trade Commission a annoncé qu'elle va organiser une rencontre le 8 décembre 2011 pour discuter des enjeux de cette application en matière de protection de la vie privée. 

On peut ainsi lire sur le site du FTC que: 
"Facial recognition technology has been adopted in a variety of new contexts, ranging from online social networks to digital signs and mobile apps. Its increased use has raised a variety of privacy concerns. The FTC workshop will gather consumer protection organizations, academics, business and industry representatives, privacy professionals, and others to examine the use of facial recognition technology and related privacy and security concerns. The workshop is free and open to the public.
Topics may include:
- What are the current and future uses of facial recognition technology?
- How can consumers benefit from the technology?
- What are the privacy and security concerns surrounding the adoption of the technology; for example, have consumers consented to the collection and use of their images?
- Are there special considerations for the use of this technology on or by children and teens?
- What legal protections currently exist for consumers regarding the use of the technology, both in the United States and internationally?
- What consumer protections should be provided?"
