“ No biometric data “will not be used and there will be no facial recognition at the Olympic Games, the Ministry of Sports confirms to Paris:” the government has just decided to avoid a process under general supervision “says his article titled” Paris 2024: no facial recognition at the Olympics Still, it confirms the use of algorithms smart “behavior detection” suspects “.
“ The measure that will be proposed in the field of artificial intelligence to secure competition, as part of the bill related to the organization of the Paris Olympic Games in 2024, completely and explicitly excludes the use of facial recognition. », Specifies the Ministry and confirms a commitment made by Cédric O last March.
The Minister of Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, had specified in the Senate that “ currently the legal provisions regarding safety do not provide for these devices »:
“ We are working on intelligent, yet anonymized algorithms to manage mass movements in transportation. And even these video security devices will have to be examined by the Cnil and the Council of State before they are implemented. »
The aim would also be to identify the presence of objects left on public roads by their owners. So it remains to be seen what other use cases will be used in the field of behavioral detection. suspects “.
Referring to the XXII Group’s experiments with artificial intelligence algorithms, its founder Wiliam Eldin explained that “ it is software interpretation that forms the toolbox of artificial intelligence “, and “ the only limit is our imagination »:
“ And that’s the magic, because vision in humans is the main sensor for analysis and development in the outside world, so every time we manage to reproduce a human’s thought patterns, we find a use case. »
