Are you in favour of facial recognition cameras being installed in Ireland?

The new National Children's Hospital is due to open on the site of St James's Hospital in Dublin in 2022 and is set to cost more than 2 billion euro.

A part of this large budget is set to go towards the installation of facial recognition technology from China as a part of the hospitals security system.

This type of technology maps features from a photograph or video and compares it with a database of known faces in order to confirm the identity of a person.

This decision to implement this technology in the new National Children's Hospital has proved to be very controversial and has raised some GDPR concerns from the public.
