The Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) has restricted the use of some artificial intelligence tools that will help them track gambling behaviour, Bloomberg reports.
The DICJ has asked casinos not to install any digital surveillance equipment, including facial recognition, that it hasn’t expressly approved, the report said citing people who had seen a confidential directive dated July 30.
The new rules came into effect on Aug. 1, the news agency said.
The regulator has also directed companies to comply with laws pertaining to personal data. Any video or data used or obtained from these high-surveillance tools is to be kept only by the casino operators, according to these newly issued rules.
