San Jose Mercury News reports on facial recognition software being used at the international airport in Sochi, Russia. Made by U.S.-based Artec Group, the technology uses a 3D camera to identify individual faces with the intent of improving airport security. Artec Group Chief Executive Artyom Yukhin said the software can differentiate between identical twins, isn’t fooled by disguises and has been tested in airports around the world, the report states. Meanwhile, a World Economic Forum report predicts that facial recognition will be implemented as part of fully automatic check-in systems at airports and border crossings by 2025. And last week, the U.S. NTIA kicked off talks aimed at creating a voluntary code of conduct for facial recognition technology.
