EU AI Proposal Impact on Video Surveillance Examined

The EU has released a proposal for how it plans to regulate AI, directly impacting certain video surveillance technologies but exempting many products through a major loophole.
"High-risk" AI like facial recognition will require numerous mandatory compliance measures and will face more "narrow" constraints for law enforcement usage. Lower-risk AI such as emotion/demographic analytics will require being disclosed to passerby.
The law has major loopholes that may be great for manufacturers but undermines the intent of the regulation.
In this post, IPVM examines the proposal for this sprawling, GDPR-style law in detail.
