Marios Savvides, director of the CyLab Biometrics Center and associate research professor of electrical and computer engineering, was recently interviewed on CNN about why facial recognition technology failed to identify the suspects of the Boston Marathon bombing. He explains that low-resolution images prevented current technologies from identifying the two individuals, even though there were pictures of both in public databases. Check out the CNN video here, where Savvides discusses research that is looking into ways that people can be identified through facial recognition software even if the picture is at an angle or the quality is low.Savvides Talks Facial Recognition Software on CNN
