Face Recognition For Groups Doesn't Work Well

from the wasting-money dept

With all the hype about airport security, companies that make face recognition technology are salivating as they approach airports with their systems. The trouble is that in scanning large groups of people to pick out the “bad guys”, the technology sucks. It picks out the wrong people all the time. Of course, the companies that sell the technology aren’t about to tell you that. Instead, they’re just trying to add up the sales as fast as they can.
