In all of the articles we have covered thus far, we have covered a wide range of Biometric technologies. These have ranged from the “Ultimate Biometric of All” (Retinal Recognition) to the “Oldest Biometric of All” (Hand Geometry Recognition) to now the “Most Controversial Biometrics of All” (Facial Recognition). Why does this modality deserve such a title? The primary reason for this is that it can be used in a very covert fashion-unbeknown to the public. As a result, there have been many cries of Civil Liberties and Privacy Rights Violations, thus triggering its very low acceptance rate. Also, unlike the other Biometric Technologies, Facial Recognition still has some ways to go to be deemed as 100% reliable.
