South Korea to use facial recognition for COVID-19 contact-tracing
South Korea has announced it will roll out a pilot project to use AI, facial recognition and over 10,820 CCTV cameras to track the movement of people infected with COVID-19. The pilot will begin in January in Bucheon. "It sometimes takes hours to analyse a single CCTV footage. Using visual recognition technology will enable that analysis in an instant," Bucheon mayor Jang Deog-cheon said.
