Facial and Object Recognition

Facial and object recognition technology is a form of automated image recognition that uses computer algorithms to uniquely identify an individual or object.

Facial recognition technologies as they relate to XR and as it relates to other areas are still in their infancy and need further refinement to maximize potential and minimize harms around privacy, autonomy, and human rights. Commitment to clear and transparent rules of the road, respect for personal privacy, and robust data security practices are baselines for adoption of these technologies.

Such approaches also inform the regulatory approach as stakeholders collectively find appropriate guardrails to safeguard privacy but realize the clear benefits of such technologies.
