Facial Confirmation Analytic Pilot Program

Came across this short video from CBS made in May, about what they call "facial recognition", but I would call facial confirmation.

As opposed to the usual FR programs, this one seems doable.


Person poses 2 feet from the camera, looks straight ahead, flash goes on - ideal conditions. Also it appears to only be doing 1 to 1 matching, i.e., is the person standing in front of the camera the same as the picture on the passport. That makes it likely to be highly accurate. DMVes have been doing similar for years.

Btw, super silly example, the system determined that this guy did not match to that woman:

Agreed. But show me how C.M. Jenner could use Bruce's passport without incident and then I'll be impressed.
