Comments - Facial Recognition On 60 Minutes

Did anyone see this segment about facial recognition on 60 Minutes?

I am skeptical of the speed they portray this happening in. Some of the opt in stuff, yeah I get that. Small database with good pictures is easy. The one I struggle with is the random pictures processed through Facebook and then, once the name is found, getting a Soc #. They make it look like he did it all in a few minutes.
