Report: Aussie police begin using facial recognition tech to track scofflaw motorists
According to Australia's Drive, the software won't minutely scan your face like something out of The Matrix – it will only will take measurements of the distances between one's eyes, nose and mouth. When someone applies for a license, his or her measurements will be compared to the others in the database, and if there's a "high probability match" there will be an alert.
The technology will also be used for people applying for photo cards. However, the price of a license or photo card will not be raised even though the citizenry will be being watched much more closely. The plan is that the new procedures will help reduce the $3.5 billion Australian ($3.25B U.S.) the country has to spend every year combating identity fraud.
