3D Face Recognition Pioneer SensibleVision Pushes Back on Microsoft’s Call for Government Regulation

Urges focus on the importance of market drivers in technology adoption

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 24, 2018SensibleVision, a global developer of mobile, AI-based 3D face authentication solutions, today criticized Microsoft’s call for government regulation of facial recognition technology. SensibleVision has been working in the digital biometric space for over a dozen years and holds seven issued patents related to this technology.

In a recent blog post, Microsoft President Brad Smith urged Congress to study and oversee the use of facial recognition technology, comparing it to products like medicines and cars that are highly regulated. The company is the first tech giant to call for regulations to monitor and manage use of this emerging technology.

Microsoft established an internal committee earlier this year called AI and Ethics in Engineering and Research (AETHER). The group’s mission is to formulate internal policies to respond to specific technology-related issues but to date has not published any guidance regarding facial recognition.

“Why would Smith single out this one technology for external oversight and not all biometrics methods?” asks George Brostoff, CEO and Co-Founder of SensibleVision. “In fact, unlike fingerprints or iris scans, a person's face is always in view and public. I would suggest it’s the use cases, ownership and storage of biometric data (in industry parlance “templates”) that are critical and should be considered for regulation. Partnerships between private companies and the public sector have always been key to the successful adoption of innovative technologies. We look forward to contributing to this broader discussion.”
