One more step towards total control of the state — against the backdrop of a new processing system of surveillance for the purpose of face recognition technology earlier look for the most part come from the Stone Age.
This is just another face of the rapidly growing industry of observation, whose victims were the fear and paranoia of the American people, instilled in him by the Government through the Department of Homeland Security and the organization of those close to him.
Perhaps the only system that can compete with this super-fast technology, developed for military drones possessing three-dimensional models of persons. This method allows you to confidently identify an object even smaller part of his face.
The new system, developed by the Japanese company Hitachi Kokusai Electric, able to handle a shot faster and more flexible than any previous technology, allowing you to respond more quickly to positive identification.
The system was demonstrated at the exhibition Security Show Expo in Japan. It can handle a wide range of information, among which both photos and videos.
Thanks to the stunning ability of the system to match the subject's face with 36 million other people every second, face recognition can be carried out in real time, or at least as much as possible approached to him.
That is, in less than ten seconds she would be able to compare your face with the face of every person in the United States.
The identification of the system, a person can be displayed as thumbnails, allowing studying video footage to tell exactly what the person was engaged for a time.
The great speed of the new system allows for image processing in order to identify individuals at the time of the recording camera, whereas earlier systems worked with the images when received.
For obvious reasons, this situation was a known problem because it causes significant delays, although worthy of interest in the question of how accurate the new technology, especially given that the software for facial recognition notoriously unreliable.
Unlike the aforementioned systems, which uses three-dimensional model for a correct recognition of a wider range of situations, the power of the system to operate only with those of the camera rotated at least 30 degrees, both vertically and horizontally.
Moreover, in order for the system to function properly, the face size of the image must occupy at least 40 x 40 pixels.
It's certainly not as impressive as the military system, which requires only a small portion of the image, though inferior in speed.
However, the civilian version, which is scheduled to start sales of Hitachi Kokusai Electric for the next financial year are likely to become commercially available, which does not seem to say about the tracking system for the UAV.
Quite alarming ubiquity of this trend, as well as the virtual absence of resistance to it.
It looks like the American people as well as people in the rest of the world, not their senses, while the camera face detection will not appear on every corner, in every home, workplace and other public places.
Let us hope that this is not the case, but there is a lack of opposition in the United States promises little good.
