Before entering the venue, concert-goers had to watch a few panels that stayed with your data facial
The past may 18, the singer Taylor Swift gave a concert at the Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, California. The fans who went to see it were, without knowing it, the guinea pigs of a new facial recognition technology designed to detect potential stalkers of the singer.
According to the publication Rolling Stone, concert organizers installed several screens along the entry to the stadium in which the attendees could see videos of the singer rehearsing.
What they didn't know is that these screens also recorded them, by capturing an image of the face and comparing it with a database with the bullies that have threatened or bothered ever to Taylor Swift.
"The technology is promising but we are being very careful to implement it", he assured Rolling Stone Justin Burleigh, product manager for Ticketmaster, which also has a facial recognition system that have begun to apply in large concerts.
