New face recognition technology apparently works
The technology records the surface of a person's face by scanning it with a series of light patterns and stores the data as a three-dimensional image in a computer.
Employing mathematical algorithms similar to those used in Internet searches, the computer measures the distances between a number of sample points on the facial surface.
The distances are then reconfigured as straight lines in a three-dimensional space, creating a new and abstracted image, or signature, of a human face built on precise mathematical calculations.
