### Why is the EU AI Regulation law significant?

Jakubowska highlights that the EU AI Regulation marks a significant milestone for human rights and civil society organizations. This endorsement from the European Parliament demonstrates their commitment to combat the most harmful uses of AI systems. While there is room for further improvement, the passing of this law is a cause for celebration.

### Understanding the Scope and Impact of the EU AI Regulation

One contentious issue within the negotiations surrounding the EU AI Act has been facial recognition technology. The compromise reached by parliamentarians from all political groups is that live facial recognition and other biometric profiling should be banned without exception in public spaces. Strict limits will also be imposed on retrospective uses of facial recognition and other related systems that have been linked to human rights abuses worldwide.

### Debunking Claims of Enhanced Security with Facial Recognition

Jakubowska challenges claims made by private companies and governments, such as the French government, that facial recognition technology enhances security. She points out that there is no evidence supporting these claims, and in fact, evidence suggests that mass surveillance technologies make individuals less safe. Examples of human rights abuses related to facial recognition in the EU and around the world further emphasize the need for regulation.

### Exploring Predictive Policing and Its Implications

Predictive policing encompasses a range of techniques, from low-tech to algorithmic predictions based on AI. These systems rely on discriminatory and biased information to predict crime and recidivism. Jakubowska explains that these practices violate individuals’ right to the presumption of innocence, and there are real examples of people being unjustly detained based on faulty predictive policing technologies.

### Regulation a Step Towards Ethical AI

Acknowledging the need for regulation, French President Emmanuel Macron emphasizes the importance of creating safe and unbiased AI models. He highlights the need for rules and regulations to ensure the responsible development and use of AI technologies. This sentiment aligns with the EU’s push for a comprehensive regulatory framework for AI.
