Parliament also encouraged to prohibit the use of private databases to recognize individuals, such as the artificial intelligence system of the American startup ClearView (it already uses the police of individual countries of Europe), and declare out of law any offenses forecasting systems based on behavioral data.

Back in April, the European Commission submitted a bill on regulating the use of artificial intelligence technologies with a high risk, which included a ban on social assessment and a fundamental ban on the use of remote biometric observation in public places. However, the European Data Protection Council and the European Supervision Authority for Data Protection, as well as a number of deputies of the European Parliament considered the draft law not worked enough.

The resolution adopted by the European Parentine by a majority vote, in terms of remote biometric observation, the following appeal to the European Commission is contained:

… It is necessary to prohibit any processing of biometric data, including images of persons in law enforcement purposes, leading to massive tracking in publicly available places; The European Commission should stop financing biometric research or deployment of programs that can lead to indiscriminate mass surveillance in public places.

The resolution also aimed at combating algorithmic bias and calls for a mandatory strong supervision of the human operator for the work of algorithms in order to prevent discrimination by the AI, especially in the work of law enforcement agencies and in the context of the crossing of borders.

Deputies of the European Parliament agreed that people operators should always make final decisions, stating that entities controlled by systems based on artificial intelligence should have access to remedies.

The resolution follows that to ensure compliance with the fundamental human rights, the algorithms that use identification systems based on AI, which often incorrectly identify ethnic minorities, LGBTI, elderly and women should be transparent, tracked and fairly documented.

The resolution of the Parliament calls for the introduction of a ban on AI-assistants when making court decisions — attempts to introduce such algorithms in the criminal justice system (first of all, when making decisions about the early liberation of convicts) revealed numerous facts of discrimination against National minors from AI.

Commenting on the adoption of the resolution, the speaker Petar Vitanov said: «The basic rights are unconditional. For the first time we call for a moratorium on the deployment of decision-making systems in law enforcement purposes, since this technology turned out to be ineffective and often leads to discriminatory results. We are categorically against the predicting police based on the use of AI, as well as against any processing of biometric data leading to mass tracking. This is a huge victory for all citizens of Europe. «
