As far as I understand the GDPR won't restrict the tech itself, but only
its use. Which makes sense. Basically, no consent => no use, except in
very restricted scenarios (e.g. public security).

That said, to have a workable face recognition, you'll need a training
set (at least with current "solutions"), so you'll have to collect
consent from all those face "providers".

All the above said, I'm not a lawyer. Nor do I play one on TV :)
