Facial recognition technology has been widely used by the military for identity confirmation and surveillance. It is a unique biometric system because there is no contact necessary to gather images, unlike fingerprinting. Facial recognition, which is also used as a security feature on smartphones and computers, can be improved to more accurately identify a person based on their facial features. Researchers from the University of York FaceVar Lab are working on ways to improve facial recognition as a security feature that would also translate to improvements for military applications.
