Security gadget compares 36 million faces in one second
Archival photo from HürriyetA new surveillance system developed by Hitachi Kokusai Electric is now capable of comparing 36 million faces in a split second for facial recognition, The Verge has reported.
The system was recently showcased at the Security Show Expo in Japan and can run through 36 million faces to compare it to a face it grabs from video footage or a photo.
Applying the facial recognition process while the footage is recorded, instead of afterwards, gives the groundbreaking system its dizzying speed. Everywhere the recognized face has been spotted is then grouped together and brought up to the viewer.
The system will go on sale next year.
