Cities should regulate facial recognition instead of banning it, China’s AI champion SenseTime says
- The CEO of the world’s most valuable AI start-up says guidelines would help manage how these systems are deployed.
“Governments should craft regulations, instead of restricting use [of facial recognition systems],” said Xu Li, co-founder and chief executive of SenseTime, on the sidelines of a company event in Beijing on Wednesday. “There should be standard guidelines to determine under which conditions certain emerging technologies can be used.”
He described the introduction of new rules covering facial recognition as “crucial” towards the wider adoption of this form of AI technology around the world, while suggesting the ban in San Francisco ban would be the “exception” to that trend.
