Facial Recognition Freeze Frame
The facial recognition market is expected to grow to $8.5 billion by 2025—a major jump from $3.8 billion in 2020.
Where that growth occurs, however, may be derailed by the continuously evolving legal and regulatory landscape. Following analysis of algorithms and increasing pressure from privacy and civil liberties advocates, regulatory bodies around the world are considering prohibitions or moratoriums on facial recognition technology use—especially by law enforcement and in public places.
To help establish these safeguards, the World Economic Forum worked with partner agencies to create a global framework for responsible limits on facial recognition.
