Axon, formerly Taser International, is pushing to add facial-recognition software to its product line, The Financial Times reports. Despite claiming it is not exploring the use of facial recognition, the company is filing three patents for facial-recognition software. Two of the patents are pending, but U.S. patents said the technology can identify individuals and blur out sensitive information in police footage. The software also estimates a person’s age and race as it measures unique physical features, like nose length and spacing from cheeks to chin. (Registration may be required to access this website.)
