Chinese Police Wearing Facial Recognition Are Here

Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 06, 2018

This is a very interesting and highly atypical usage of facial recognition that the Chinese government touted this week:

It is a PRC police officer performing real-time facial recognition using a camera attached to their sunglasses. The announcement says that they have already captured 7 criminals and 26 people using fake identification.

In this note, we examine why the solution solves many technical problems of using facial recognition but raises significant legal issues.
