British police officers have this week started using facial recognition software designed to automatically identify criminals from digital images. Police in Leicestershire become the first in the UK to test NECs NeoFace software, which the force says is capable of comparing any digital image of a suspect with photos held on its database, by comparing dozens of measurements against key facial features. The method will soon be copied across the Atlantic ocean — the FBI is set to deploy its own facial recognition system, called Next Generation Identification, across all 50 US states by the end of this year. This isnt the first time the Leicestershire police force has pioneered the use of technology in catching criminals.
