Facial Recognition Technology Rolling Out

Airlines such as Delta and Emirates are introducing facial recognition technology. In May, Delta announced the launch of its new, self-service bag drop powered by facial recognition technology, the first of its kind at U.S. airports.

Rather than handing over your luggage to a Delta agent, you’ll check it in yourself — as a computer scans your face to confirm that you are who you say you are.

The pilot program will begin at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport this summer. The airline spent $600,000 on its four new self-service stations, one of which uses facial recognition technology to match customers with their passport photos.
