Face Recognition Technology On Mobile
Spoke to Amelia Adams from Nine News on the technology about a new software developed for smartphones whereby you can take a picture of somebody on your mobile phone and access their social networking profiles.
Recogniser is a mobile application that has been designed so you can quickly bring up friends' social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Myspace at the touch of a button.
There are some concerns that this could increase the hold of stalkers over prey, but as mentioned in the story you do have to sign up to the service and only those who you wish to access the information will get it.
Will that change over time? Well, hackers love a good challenge, so maybe in the near future, the alleged implications might come to fruition.
