AI surveillance bill for 2024 Olympics


AI surveillance bill for 2024 Olympics

French government officials have permitted a bill which excludes the use of biometrics and any other facial recognition technology during the sporting event to be staged in Paris.

AI video surveillance technology will be used for incident detection during the 2024 Summer Olympics in France, but not facial recognition.

The baton has now been passed on to the National Assembly which is expected to deliver its verdict on the draft legislation this month.

French governments has also allowed for the use of CCTV cameras and drones around game venues and in other public places such as streets and public transportation. The recorded footage, which will not include personal data, will be analyzed to detect premeditated events, abnormal behavior or incidents that portend danger for persons attending the games.
