Keywords:Facial recognition, Artificial intelligence, Ethics, Biometrics, Privacy
This paper investigates the current state of Facial Recognition Technology (FRT) and the ethical concerns surrounding it discussed in literature. Based on these concerns, a code of ethics is developed to provide recommendations on how to use FRT ethically. The essence of this code is to protect the rights of citizens and to use FRT in a way that minimizes misuse and benefits all. Finally, a specific use case of FRT is introduced to demonstrate how the proposed code of ethics can be applied effectively to a real project. The findings are then summarized, and recommendations made going forward.
