Using facial recognition technology, law enforcement officials nabbed 25 people attending an annual beer festival in China wanted in connection with crimes in that country.
Installing eighteen cameras at all four entrances to the beer festival in Qingdao, China, the facial recognition technology notified law enforcement agents by sounding an alarm that a suspect had been matched with an image in the police database.
According to law enforcement officials, who were situated at each of the four venue entrances, the technology had a 98.1 percent rate of accuracy in identifying the suspects.
China is no stranger to facial recognition, already using the technology to identify jaywalkers at busy intersections and predict customers' orders at fast food chains.
