A list of the 10 most divisive apps that have emerged from the facial recognition technology that’s being deployed by Google and others around the world.
Face ID: The app is currently available for iPhone and Android phones, and has been downloaded more than 200 million times since its release last year.
The software can recognize facial features including eyes, mouth, mouth movements and more, allowing it to track people without their knowledge.
Face Pay: This facial recognition service requires an iPhone or Android phone, and it’s the first facial recognition system to be offered for credit card payments.
The app is compatible with all major credit cards, and will pay you at your own expense if you use it at a restaurant, bar, store or other location.
Facial Recognition Pro: While the facial technology is being used to unlock cars and other vehicles, facial recognition is also being used for other purposes.
The company behind this facial recognition app is called Facial Vision Solutions, and the company says it has a billion-dollar valuation.
FaceTag: An app developed by the facial detection company FaceTag that allows you to unlock your phone, which can be used for banking, shopping and more.
Foursquare: FoursquARE, an app that allows people to share their location and other information in real-time, was created by the company behind Tinder, which lets users match users in real time.
The Foursque app lets users create lists of their locations and other real-world data, including addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information.
iFitness: It’s a wearable device that uses sensors to track how much calories you eat.
The apps uses these data to offer calorie estimates based on your current physical activity level.
Glympse: Glympse uses the same technology that Google has used in its Google Glass facial recognition systems to recognize people by their faces.
The technology has been in development for some time, and now Google has licensed it to Fitbit and others to use in their wearable devices.
Glance: You can swipe a QR code on your phone to access a variety of different services, including social networking, weather, and even a photo album of your photos.
Lighthouse: Another facial recognition tech that was recently released is Lighthouse, which is also used by Amazon Alexa and other voice assistants.
Lighthouses technology has also been licensed to FitBit and others, and Lighthouse says it can detect a user’s face and give users directions to the nearest grocery store.
Meals on Wheels: Meals on wheels are a popular way for people to get around town, but the facial identification technology that was developed to detect people using the system was also used to scan a group of people and determine who they were.
The system is currently being used by many cities around the country to scan pedestrians and cyclists for potential crimes.
