The FBI has found a new way to identify someone from photos.
According to a statement, the FBI has developed a facial recognition technology that it uses to scan facial images in the event of a terrorist attack or other public event, and in the case of a crime, the agency can then link the information to the location of the crime.
According the FBI, the new technology can be used to track and identify people who have gone missing in the United States in the past two years.
The technology is used to scan a person’s face for facial recognition, and can help locate them from images and video footage captured from various locations around the world.
According this statement, “If a crime is committed, the individual will be located in a crime scene, and the FBI will then track the individual’s whereabouts and locate him/her at the crime scene.”
According to the FBI statement, if the FBI finds someone matching the individual to a crime victim, the information is passed to local law enforcement agencies, who will then be able to link it to the crime victim.
“If the FBI detects an individual matching the information in the images to the information of a missing person, it will then notify law enforcement authorities, who can then determine where the individual is, what he/she did, and what he or she did to get there,” the statement said.
According for the FBI to be able track down a missing individual, they have to be located by a law enforcement agency, and that is where the technology is being used.
The FBI’s use of facial recognition has been criticized by privacy advocates, as it could potentially lead to profiling and other types of law enforcement abuses.
The privacy impact of the facial recognition could be large, as people could be subject to the identification of the individual in question, as well as the collection of information about them, according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
The use of face recognition in a national security setting could also be a violation of privacy, said the EFF.
“Facial recognition technology can identify an individual even if they have not committed a crime,” said the organization.
“Even when facial recognition does not capture specific information, it can be able, for example, to match a suspect’s face to a photo.”
The FBI has yet to announce the use of the technology to track down and locate people, but the FBI and DHS are considering using facial recognition in the future.
