Read My Face: Intrusive! - Interruption Management


Oracle magazine, in 2011, noted that "in Tokyo’s Shinagawa Station there are vending machines that use facial recognition cameras to scan customers and link their faces to a database of demographic facial characteristics. By identifying a person’s age and gender, the machine then makes a personalized drink recommendation."

"The appeal of facial recognition technology is that while it is very accurate, it’s not as intrusive as other biometric methods such as DNA testing. Japan is also embracing digital billboards that use facial recognition technology for tailored advertising, as well as pilot projects that employ walk-through facial scanning instead of passwords or fingerprints for access."
This is exactly the kind of information vendors should not have about us!
