The introduction of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) impacted how organizations can handle personal data like images or photos.
Companies must adhere to the regulation and be GDPR-compliant. From a legal perspective, a lot depends on what data is extracted and used, and where it’s sent.
For example, using CV for people counting is allowed, but building individual customer profiles based on visual appearance is illegal.
To comply with privacy directives like GDPR, CCPA, APPI, and CSL, anonymization software comes into play, protecting personal information in images.
For example, redaction software can help healthcare companies using CV keep in line with specifications like HIPAA. Most EU countries have individual strategies for regulating AI that are broadly similar.
More structured regulation is to come, evidenced by the Artificial Intelligence Act outlined by the European Commission. The Commission proposes a risk-based approach, with four levels of risk.
