Facial recognition in Latin America: trends in the implementation of a perverse technology

"Facial recognition in Latin America" cover page

Facial recognition is a biometric identification technology that, by analyzing certain characteristic features of the face, seeks to establish a person’s identity.

Although it is less accurate than other forms of biometric identification, such as fingerprint or iris reading, it does not require physical contact. This allows its deployment, for example, in public spaces for large-scale surveillance purposes and without those who are being subjected to its scrutiny necessarily being aware of it.
