Selfie scraping Clearview AI €20 Million fine in Greece

The Hellenic data protection authority has fined the controversial facial recognition firm Clearview AI with €20 million and banned it from collecting and processing the personal data of people living in Greece. Also already collected data should be deleted. The business model of Clearview AI is scraping selfies off the internet to build an algorithmic identity-matching commercial service aimed at law enforcement agencies and others, including private sector entities.
