Event: Spotlight on Face Recognition Technology

Date: September 3, 2020

Time: 14:30 – 16:00 CET/Paris Time


Face Recognition Technology (FRT) has continued to gain prominence as a scalable and reliable biometric with a wide range of potential applications. Interest in FRT was fueled by recent performance breakthroughs and by the increased attention to contactless biometrics in the aftermath of COVID-19.

In view of its significance and the current elevated interest, ID4Africa is organizing this Spotlight Session on FRT. The session starts with a keynote that presents NIST's latest assessments of the state of the art of FRT, its biases and limitations. The session will then explore recent case studies where the technology has been deployed in the service of development, followed by a cautionary note on the responsible use of FRT.
