Big Brother (UK edition)

by on December 21, 2005 · 6 comments

Just in time for the holidays, British officials have announced that Santa will no longer be the only one who can find out if you’ve been naughty or nice. The Independent reports the imminent creation of a nationwide network of road, convenience store and other cameras that will be tied into a central database equipped with license plate reading technology. The movements of all cars will be recorded and stored for a period of two years. The ostensible purpose is to gather intelligence and fight terrorism, of course. Truly frightening.

    Don’t worry about Facial recognition for a few more years. The pose angle and lighting obstacles present too big a challenge to current technology. Flash LADAR and our 3D recognition technoloogy can do it but that’s three years in R&D; away.
