Original Message First the AI came for the rats...

The world's biggest pest-control group is planning to eliminate rats through the use of facial recognition, with trials now taking place in people's homes.

The software - which Rentokil began developing 18 months ago alongside Vodafone - tracks rodents' habits to help decide how to kill them.


Rentokil has been developing facial recognition for several years but it has moved a step further forward following the acquisition of an Israeli company.
