The program of the city authorities of New York, which consists in tracking and identifying terrorist organizations using the face recognition system, is currently still incomplete.
It is reported that the tests that took place a year ago failed miserably. During the first phase of testing, the research team found that the facial recognition system failed to detect a single person whose faces were recorded in the program in advance.
Researchers associate this problem with the system with a too early stage in the development of facial recognition technology at extremely powerful speeds.
Employees of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory believe that it reached a high accuracy of up to 80% in its study, finding the “right” person through tinted windshields. In this case, the laboratory noted that the tests took place at very low speeds.
