3.) Live Facial Recognition for Carnival by Brazilian Police

Brazil has evolved in the using of facial recognition technology and is now in place in the largest possible lab that is the Carnival. Though it was used for a similar purpose last year but it was on a smaller scale.

This technology helps in cataloging faces of million people automatically who are having a good time on the streets and the “sambadromes”, which is a ground where the world-famous parades take place. It, also aims to find out about wanted criminals.

The country’s largest urban center “Sao Paulo” has tech that supports many cameras which send facial images to the police database. After the announcement of this facial recognition the Sao Paulo police added that a “situation room” would monitor the images from the cameras, which are then compared with a database managed by a biometrics lab. Thus, preventing any wrongful arrests or mistaken identity.

If this would be successful event, the police of São Paulo plans on using the system in various other events which involve crowds and where there is potential for conflict and criminal activity.

However, the use of facial recognition in Brazil elsewhere in the public sector has been controversial.

    Hi to all. My wife and I are surprised we stumbled upon the wealth of knowledge here. I’ve been scoping the news for this info for a long time and I will be imploring everyone I know to drop by. The other evening I was traversing through the google searches trying to scope out a conclusion to my stinging questions. Now I am going to take risks in whatever avenues possible. We are getting all maxed out on the widespread news we are seeing. Again I just had to thank you while I could for such amazing assistance. This has moved me out of rough territory. Many precious things are sprouting in my life. Its such a likable place to make conscious connections. I’m blessed also that I am looking into the topic of 2020 energy prediction. Reach out to me if you are curious. Thanks for taking the time to read this post. You can give me your ideas and I will get back as soon as I am able. All my best and I’ll talk with you soon.
