    Facial Recognition: Learn About The Pros & Cons From The CEO Of FaceFirst

    in Technology

    If one were to examine the Biometric Modalities which are available today, the one technology which would stand out in terms of recognition by the public is that of Facial Recognition.  Why is this so?  Well, after the tragic incidents of 9/11, Facial Recognition, received a lot attention by the press and the media as the "cure all" technology for all of the security ailments present in the United States at the time.  But when Facial Recognition failed to live up to its standards, it was ripped apart to shreds even as a viable technology.  Also, Facial Recognition can be used very covertly, thus creating claims of privacy rights and civil liberties violations by the American public.  In this radio show, we interview Mr. Joe Rosenkrantz, CEO of FaceFirst.  From him, we will find out first hand how successful or not Facial Recognition actually is, and the kinds of deployments which they have implemented.  We will also discuss with him the social implications of Facial Recognition, and what it means to the American society as a whole.

About Technology

We love technology. Without the Internets, how could we offer 35,000 new shows a month to listen to, playback and download? Technology is so pervasive, we treat our devices like trusty companions, carrying them around with us, and going through withdrawal when they're recharging or misplaced. We discipline our children by taking away electronic privileges. We check tech blogs and forums for PC and Mac rumors. And just when we've geeked out on the latest-and-greatest gadgets, our eyes widen at the glimpse of what will quickly usurp them. Can't make it to SXSW, CTIA, CES and other trade shows? Our hosts take you there. Unsure which operating systems, software or apps are worth your time and money? Get expert advice from bestselling authors, CTOs and leading technologists on product news, e-learning, cloud computing, cameras, home entertainment, camcorders, iPhones, Androids, BlackBerrys, PlayStation, Wii, tablets, iPods and everything keeping our lives in sync.
