Jun 25 Japan store pilots new face recognition system (securityinfowatch.com)

Until now, searching for a specific person required someone to look at every image filmed. However, the new system developed by Hitachi, Ltd., is capable of dramatically narrowing down likely matches from a list of about 10,000 faces in only a second once a specific face from the camera is selected.
