1/5📢📅 Today 62 organisations demand #AIRedlines for applications of #ArtificialIntelligence that threaten fundamental #HumanRights in an @edri open letter to the @EU_Commission. 👇🏿👇🏿
2/5 Ahead of the EU AI proposal, we call for regulatory limits on:
🔶uses of AI at the border & in migration control
🔶social scoring & AI systems determining access to social rights and benefits
🔶predictive policing
🔶& more

#BanThisBS #Surveillance #AIRedlines
3/5 Regulating the use of AI & ensuring the protection of our rights is the EU's chance to show true innovation. Europe's industries, from AI developers to car manufacturing, will benefit from regulatory certainty of clear legal limits & even playing field for fair competition.

1/4 Tomorrow the @EUCouncil will discuss #TERREG new draft with the aim to reach a final compromise with @EP_Justice during Thursday’s trilogue
2/4 The proposal was already subject to criticism by @fra, @edps and three UN Special Rapporteurs in 2018-19. Yet again, EU plans to counter online terrorist propaganda are under fire from @Irenekhan and @NiAolainF

Read and share! #TERREG
3/4 Legislation would have “serious implications for freedom of expression, association & political participation” say @Irenekhan @NiAolainF
Concerns are:
❕ Broad definition of terrorist content
⚖️Lack of judicial oversight
🌪 Short timeframe, upload filters & EU-wide removal

1/8 👂 WHEN THEY HEAR US: After a majority of respondents called on the EU to ban biometric identification in the #AIWhitePaper consultation, the @EU_Commission says a ban is still being considered.
#BanThisBS #FacialRecognition #MassSurveillance #DemocracyInAction #PeoplePower
2/8 What is at stake with biometric surveillance? Our reality as we know it! We must protect our democratic public spaces– and with them, our freedoms to speak, to assemble, to protest and to express ourselves.

#BanThisBS #FacialRecognition
3/8 Europe, right now 🇪🇺: more than 15 countries have secretly experimented with harmful #Biometric systems like #FacialRecognition in public spaces. They have often ignored existing laws & showed no respect for democracy or critical public opinion.
