Prestižinėje leidykloje išleista Teisės instituto mokslininkių koordinuota knyga

The internationally renowned Cambride University Press has published a collective book, coordinated by the Institute's researchers, which examines various aspects of the use of facial recognition technologies: The Cambridge Handbook of Facial Recognition in Modern State (eds. Monika Žalnieriūtė and Rita Matulionytė).

The book covers the legal, social and ethical aspects of facial recognition technologies in five regions of the world - Europe, North America, South America, Asia-Pacific and Africa.

Facial recognition technologies are widely used in institutions ranging from border control and police to social services. Automated facial recognition technologies are used by governments in various countries to collect taxes, prevent crime and control migration processes. Facial recognition technologies involve the processing of a person's facial image,usually for identification, categorisation, or counting. This book brings together contributions from experts in law, technology, communications, and social and political sciences to discuss how facial recognition technologies have been developed and used by local authorities, and how they are regulated in different jurisdictions across five continents.

The book consists of 19 chapters written by 34 contributors from around the world, including Institute of Law researchers Rita Matulionytė, Agnė Limantė, Egle Kavoliūnaitė-Ragauskienė and Monika Žalnieriūtė.

This book is the result of the project „Government Use of Facial Recognition Technologies: Legal Challenges and Solutions (Face-AI)“. The project was funded by the Lithuanian Research Council (Contract No. S-MIP-21-38). 

The book is available here.
