#1 facial comparison biometric system. It is the second time in less than three weeks since the cutting-edge technology
Before the "Old Tech" procedure called Fingerprint Comparison, remember that?, there was the Alphonse Bertillon. His system under the catchy title of his book: Signaletic Instructions Including the Theory and Practice of Anthropometrical Identification(1885). Taking precise measurements of the human body, primarily the head, and using this to identify repeat offenders. Unfortunately professional criminals soon learned to twist, crouch and otherwise boggle the measurements...

Is the 21st century system going to do any better...? Or is just another way to spend government money.

They should try Phrenology.
Though I suppose current control methods may induce a few more lumps.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
