Can European Regulators Stop Clearview AI?
The US-based facial recognition company Clearview AI once told investors that “almost everyone in the world” could soon be identifiable via its biometric database.
Clearview AI has faced complaints in at least six European countries, where its methods are allegedly illegal under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). European regulators have invariably agreed that Clearview AI’s methods are incompatible with EU law and have imposed a range of sanctions—some more severe than others.
However, Clearview AI maintains that, because does not offer its services in Europe, neither the ICO nor any other European regulator has the power to impose such sanctions or penalties.
