AI Facial recognition Technology

Know that Traveling in 2021? AI will be watching – and mapping your face

AI Facial Recognition

Just imagine if you didn’t have to scan your boarding pass to get on a flight. Instead, you just scanned your face. Actually, you don’t have to imagine that — it’s a reality in many International and American airports.

AI Facial recognition Technology: google

It’s part of U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s biometric tech, which uses physiological details to ID you. For example, you can give your fingerprints — or a detailed map of your face. It’s nothing new:

Good news: Right now, you can opt out of scanning your face at the airport. But this might change soon, thanks to a new move by the CBP. The agency recently filed to expand its authority to use facial recognition at airports.

What does that mean for you? 

Simply put, officials want to strengthen security measures. Right now, only a handful of travel ports use the biometric exit program. That’s because officials wanted to see how well the program worked before expanding it. 

As it turns out, the CBP’s pleased with the results. That’s why it asked the Federal Register for permission to broaden its project’s scope. Now, it wants to use the biometric exits program in all air and land ports. 

If this gets approved, the CBP can collect the facial images from any non-citizen entering the country.

Look through the filing and you’ll find some fascinating stuff. For example, CBP wants to create “faceprints.” Those are more than simple digital scans: they identify your unique facial structure. Faceprints note every plane of your face, from your cheekbones to your chin.

Once that faceprint is taken, CBP wants to keep it for a long time. If you’re a citizen or permanent resident, the agency will keep your faceprint for 15 years. That jumps to 75 years for undocumented residents.

Here’s another takeaway. In its filing, CBP said it wants to shift the biometric exit program’s focus entirely. That means you might have to say goodbye to alternate methods like fingerprinting when you travel.
