In a single second, law enforcement agents can match a suspect against millions upon millions of profiles in vast detailed databases stored on the cloud. Its all done using facial recognition, and in Southern California its already occurring.

Imagine the police taking a picture: any picture of a person, anywhere, and matching it on the spot in less than a second to a personalized profile, scanning millions upon millions of entries from within vast, intricate databases stored on the cloud.

Its done with state of the art facial recognition technology, and in Southern California its already happening.

Unsurprised. Biometrics are being implemented in all sorts of areas and it will continue to grow. Sometimes we'll agree to it actively or through complacence: [link to sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com]

Or kind of like using one's fingerprint to gain access to an athletic club. All sorts of uses for this kind of stuff in the works like this patent registered to a couple of men associated with IBM:

[link to www.google.com]

The patented device combines biometric identification, credit information, and much, much more to decide whether a customer is desirable or undesirable. Depending on which, the customer then receives the appropriate subliminal response from the system to either get them to continue shopping or leave. Neat, eh? (written with dripping sarcasm, of course).

Very much like Minority Report. In fact, all things considered, I think Minority Report is one of those movies that really allowed us a glimpse into the near future. Much of the tech in it is quite real and in the works such as the interactive glass displays/computing (see Corningware's vids) and the biometrics.

For some, this could be a bit of a problem depending on how far it goes. There are some people out there who aren't recognized by facial recognition or whose fingertips can't be read by biometric devices. Whereas it may be a relief or a little pain in the arse right now, what happens when the ability to buy food hinges on either?
