UK police begin testing the world’s fastest face recognition tech

What’s the opposite of privacy? Publicity? Unprivacy?

Leicestershire Police are now using NEC’s NeoFace face recognition software, in the hope that it will be able to compare images from CCTV and police body cameras against the 90,000 photos in the Leicestershire Police database.

Manual searches could take hours but NeoFace can do the search in seconds.

The same tech is already in use in the US, where the Chicago Police Department recently  used it to sort through 4.5 million booking photos to help convict an armed robber.

UK police begin trialling the world’s fastest face recognition tech.
