FBI launches $1 billion face recognition project
The Next Generation Identification programme will include a nationwide database of criminal faces and other biometrics

"FACE recognition is 'now'," declared Alessandro Acquisti of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh in a testimony before the US Senate in July.

It certainly seems that way. As part of an update to the national fingerprint database, the FBI has begun rolling out facial recognition to identify criminals.

It will form part of the bureau's long-awaited, $1 billion Next Generation Identification (NGI) programme, which will also add biometrics such as iris scans, DNA analysis and voice identification to the toolkit. A handful of states began uploading their photos as part of a pilot programme this February and it is expected to be rolled out nationwide by 2014. In addition to scanning mugshots for a match, FBI officials have indicated that they are keen to track a suspect by picking out their face in a crowd.

You have to love the fact that, we the people, are paying our employees to spy on us.

In a rational world it would be the opposite.

I doubt sun glasses will work because there are MANY light frequencies untouched by the lenses. Frequencies outside of human vision.

i.e. Infrared will look right past the lense like it wasn't there.

i.e. Then there is bone prints. Everyone has a specific bone structure full of identifying flaws. If you all think they won't us x-ray on us, you're wrong. They already have x-ray trucks to deploy.


besides.....one man hiding his eyes among hundreds who are not is highly suspicious in it's own. Big fail, lol.

Re: FBI launches $1 billion face recognition project
Tagged FACEBOOK photos will form a HUGE part of the database!! (of that you can be sure)

In addition one can add in all those "shared" pictures from various picture sharing sites (ie: Google's "Picasa" etc.)

Over time these public AND VOLUNTARILY TAGGED WITH NAMES pictures will mean that virtually nobody in the developed world will not be easily recognizable to the computers ... ON A REAL TIME BASIS!

Add in cell phone tracking (and records kept as to ALL cell phone locations for the last x number of months years), and automatic license plate tracking technology, both with fixed camera locations watching busy roads, and mounted on moving police and other vehicles (in Chicago they are mounted on garbage trucks which scan all cars, moving and parked as they do their rounds) and privacy as we have previously know it IS GONE!

(oh ... and of course any message that you send electronically is for all intents and purposes KEPT FOREVER!)

It is a "Brave New World" ... a world of "1984", only 20 years later than projected

Whether it's a "face recognition" or a "facebook recognition," to spend a billion dollars on this when there are sooooooooooooooo many other things that money could be used for is absurd beyond belief.

no can do. Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) cameras detect and see thru disguises. US Border Patrol has a boat load of the cameras and more setup at checkpoints. Soon to be at train stations, bus stations and in taxi cabs, etc.. Facial recognition can identify you in seconds from hundreds of millions in data base. Then they hunt you down like dog.
