Clearview AI’s Facial Recognition Technology helps Ukraine Recognize Dead

Face recognition technology has led to the advancement of multimedia information access.

On Saturday, the Defense Ministry of Ukraine started utilizing Clearview AI's facial recognition technology. Talking to Reuters, Clearview AI's chief executive said after the U.S. startup offered to uncover Russian assailants, combat misinformation, and identify the dead. Ukraine is receiving free access to Clearview AI's powerful search engine for faces, letting authorities potentially vet people of interest at checkpoints, among other uses, added Lee Wolosky, an adviser to Clearview and former diplomat under U.S. presidents Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Ukraine's Ministry of Defense didn't answer to demands for input. Already, a representative for Ukraine's Ministry of Digital Transformation said it was thinking about offers from U.S.-based artificial intelligence companies like Clearview. Numerous Western organizations have promised to help Ukraine, providing internet hardware, cybersecurity tools, and other support.

The Clearview founder said his startup had more than 2 billion images from the Russian social media service VKontakte at its disposal, out of a database of over 10 billion photos total.

That database can help Ukraine identify the dead more easily than trying to match fingerprints and works even if there is facial damage, Ton-That wrote. Research for the U.S. Department of Energy found decomposition reduced the technology's effectiveness while a paper from a 2021 conference showed promising results.

Very few biometric technologies are attracting as much attention as facial recognition. Facial recognition technology offers a host of benefits such as authentication, monitoring, access control, indexing, and maintenance of surveillance applications.

Face recognition technology has led to the advancement of multimedia information access. Also, implementing network access control via face recognition not only makes it virtually impossible for hackers to steal a user's password but also improves human-computer interaction. This is one of the reasons why facial recognition attendance systems are gaining popularity.
