More Useless Databases

Recommended Posts

Guest David Braund
The supermarket chain Budgens has installed face recognition cameras in one of its stores to stop children buying alcohol and cigarettes.It is thought to be the first time a UK retailer has used the technology to identify underage customers.
The customers' facial features are automatically scanned against a database of images of young people who have visited the store before.Anyone who has been refused alcohol or cigarettes on a previous occasion will be flagged up.The system also identifies when a customer has previously verified that they are 18 or over, enabling the sale to proceed more quickly.Young customers who are not recognised by the system will be asked by the cashier to provide proof of their age when buying drink or cigarettes.Their details will then be added to the database.
