HOW IS MY FACEPRINT CAL­CU­LATED?

iD magazine - - Technology -

Since 2012, po­lice of­fi­cers in the U.S. have been mak­ing use of the FBI’S Uni­ver­sal Face Work­sta­tion to track down crim­i­nals. Us­ing a faceprint, the sys­tem com­pares new im­ages (from a sur­veil­lance cam­era, for ex­am­ple) with more than 12 mil­lion pho­tos in the FBI data­base. The soft­ware cal­cu­lates a faceprint on the ba­sis of 37 points and the dis­tances be­tween them.
