China to introduce face recognition system

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 8:45 am

China has approved a biometric face recognition system which will be used for surveillance and security issues.

The system captures moving facial images and features a multi-camera technology to lower the error for mismatching. The system will be used in public places, such as airports, post offices, customs entrances and even residential communities, in the near future, according to the “China Daily” newspaper.

The system measures nodal points in the human face, such as the distance between the eyes or the shape of the cheekbones. The technology has already helped the police in Beijing solve a few criminal cases involving child abduction and supermarket blackmail in the past few years, the report said.
