Don’t Smile – you are at the DMV
This is an interesting article about the facial recognition software used at the Department of Motor Vehicles and for passport photos.
A facial recognition system is a computer application for automatically identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source. One of the ways to do this is by comparing selected facial features from the image and a facial database. [Wikipedia]
Who would have thought that a smile is not wanted??
