A major railway station in southern China will begin testing a new facial recognition system later this month as part of the country’s ongoing anti-terrorism efforts, according to a report by the Beijing News.

Tian Qing, a researcher at the First Research Institute of the Ministry of Public Security, said the organization has been researching facial recognition technology since 2002. ∞∞∞∞∞ SEE MORE ∞∞∞∞∞
