Facial recognition And a Future We Might All Come to Dread
Chances are that in the coming years, when you walk into a bank, the alarm systems will go off and the security will come to bundle you off to a secured place to await your arrest. You wonder why, right?
Another scenario is that you will be walking on the road and a complete stranger will call you by your first name. I see paranoia beginning to creep in.
You probably wonder how this is possible, well technology says it is not. With a facial recognition system, everybody will be able to recognize everybody. This sounds like a scene out of a movie, does it not?
The Facial Recognition Module is a system used to identify people automatically using their video images. It works by recognizing faces caught on Axxon facial detection tool through making a comparison of their parameters with digital templates that have been stored in a database.
Apart from this, it adds or deletes entries from reference database, prints pictures of faces that have been recognized, displays recognition statistics, reviews video recording in relation to specific face recognition events, checks to see that images comply with biometric identification systems' standards.
This module makes for a pretty high level of accuracy in recognition and can be combined with an access control system with higher security requirements, like the bank or some other facilities. It can also be used in casinos, hotels, restaurants, or similar places.
Apparently some banks have already started using facial recognition systems.
Facial recognition systems provide valuable solutions to some nagging problems such as frauds. In Moscow, for instance, people use fake IDs to obtain loans. When this happens, the bank incurs damaging losses. With facial recognition systems, this menace can be curbed.
Many ATMs are equipped with this module to reduce crimes committed with ATM cards. As you are keying in your PIN, you will be warned by the machine about a shoulder surfer who may be trying to look over your shoulder to get your PIN.
The systems is of very great help to the crime fighting agency. Imagine a scenario where a fugitive is on the loose and decides to make withdrawals using an ATM card. Of course the card will probably not be his own but his face will be his and the Face Recognition System will immediately pick it up.
Wearing a face mask might work, but then the machine will refuse to let him withdraw.
You will agree with me that it all sounds wonderful. But what if there is a mistake somewhere? What if you go to make a withdrawal and the facial recognition tool flags you as a criminal?
Correcting the problem and getting yourself exonerated would most certainly take some time, time you may not have, leaving you enraged at the end.
Again, with the way technology and the internet bares our lives to the public, a Facial Recognition System which knows exactly what we look like might have us wearing disguises in the future just to be afforded some privacy.
