18 Million Face Database Now Operating In The U.K.

Video and article about a 18 million strong FaceBase that was quietly brought online in the U.K. Some controversy since citizen's mugshots were used to populate the system, whether they were later convicted or not.

Ballsy quote:

[Ramsay] said searches of the database using facial recognition were 100% reliable in cases where there were clear images, and could be completed in seconds.

Maybe they will created a realtime method for matching faces from private security cameras. This would allow for personalized deterrence messages to be generated during an attempted break-in, which could be quite effective. Something like: "Hey Jimbo, you may want to think this over; with your two priors you are looking at 5 years, hard time". ;)
