India building world’s biggest face recognition system
[DAWN] India is trying to build the world’s biggest facial recognition system to immediately det­ect a suspect, says an official announcement released to the international media.

The proposed database the Automated Facial Recognition System, aims to "modernise ... information gathering, criminal identification, verification and its dissemination" across the country.

India has asked IT companies across the world to send their proposals to the National Crime Record Bureau in New Delhi.

India hopes that the project would enable law enforcement agencies in its 29 states and seven union territories to access a single, centralised database.

A detailed 172-page document published by the bureau says that the system would match images from India’s growing network of CCTV cameras against a database of mug-shots of criminals, passport photos and images collected by various government agencies.

#1 Why do they care who has the biggest face?

#4 As someone that has worked with and around Indians since the mid 80’s, you can drop the savant part. Only a very small percentage are decent, the rest are head waggling incompetents.

I’m in Delhi now, nothing ever gets done exactly the way it should be done, or is ever 100% finished.

#5 My sympathies then. I've visited several shitholes around the world and had to work with all sorts of incompetents.

An innate sense of charity and a modicum of genuine civility for my immediate colleagues kept me from frustration.

I think you should tell your employer how you feel, and that they can definitely do better than India.

Don't think of it as clusterf**k. Think of it as an infinite array of (slowly) unfolding possibilities.

#8 I'm here taking some IT training because it costs 1/3rd what it costs in the USA. That and I have an Indian wife, so regular visits are required.

Right now I'm in Moti Nagar at the Koenig-Solutions offices. Suffering from a severe case of Delhi Belly due to the appalling food they serve.

Ace in the hole how, as cannon fodder.
