Moscow police reportedly testing facial recognition glasses
Moscow’s municipal Department of Information Technology is testing augmented reality glasses with embedded facial recognition capabilities, a source in the city government told RBC. The company Ntechlab, which is known for creating the unusually powerful facial recognition tool FindFace, is reportedly behind the project.
The pilot version of the new technology, which will be integrated with a database of individuals wanted by the police, will have access to footage from 1,500 surveillance cameras throughout the Russian capital. RBC’s sources said the first public presentation of the project is scheduled for the Interpolitech exhibition in October 2019.
