Never again consigned to sci-fi films and books, the technology is being used in various vertical markets, from helping banks recognize clients to empowering governments to look out for criminals. Let's look at some of the top countries adopting facial recognition technology.


China drives the world in deploying facial recognition. It has 170 million video surveillance cameras, with another 400 million expected in the coming three years. A large number of these cameras have artificial intelligence (AI) and facial recognition. In 2017, China petitioned for in excess of 900 facial recognition patents, as compared to 96 patents documented in the U.S.

China later declared that more than 60 of its airports had been furnished with facial recognition innovation. Cameras at 557 security channels catch pictures of faces and scan their international passports or ID cards to confirm their personality.
