Facial Recognition Technology Expedites the Global Workplace
March 25, 2015
Remember when facial recognition technology first appeared about 20 years ago? During sales demonstrations, the computer would sometimes pull up the correct picture, but would also read three or four others that might or might not look anything like the subhect. The utility for facial recognition technology was usually pushed as a security tool. Set up a camera near the door of a store, for example, and you might stop a few convicted shoplifters from walking in.
Steven Rodriguez, chief operating officer at Asure Software, laughs at that memory. "It's changed a lot since then, " he says. "For us, it's about helping companies keep track of and optimize when and where their employees work."
