New York’s First attempt at Driver Facial recognition fails
Published: April 10, 2019
A 2018 Metropolitan Transportation Authority installed recognition software on New York City’s Robert F. Kennedy Bridge has failed spectacularly at employing facial recognition on its highways. It couldn’t detect a single face “within acceptable parameters.” The problem may be inherent to the early state of facial recognition at these speeds. It sometimes has trouble recognizing non-white people and women, and it assumes a culprit won’t wear a mask or another disguise.
