The truth behind deliberate disinformation.
It depends, could we answer, but let’s deal with this question in a Galician style, that is to say asking more questions that will guide us in the application of GDPR.
Here is a look at some of the top benefits of using face recognition technology. Facial recognition has emerged as one of the most successful application in use.
Telemadrid news reports on how face recognition helps increase safety in soccer stadiums.
Javier Rodriguez Saeta, CEO of Herta Security, shares how they’re using NVIDIA GPUs to train deep neural networks for pattern recognition to help with security at airports, stadiums an train stations.
If you hardly ever forget a face, and have no trouble in instantly spotting a stranger within a dense crowd… maybe you are a super-recognizer!
If you are into the marketing world, I am sure that you will pay special attention when you hear about “analytics”.

The software is used to detect the location of a specific face in a particular photo or video, and it’s wise enough to ignore other surrounding objects such as buildings, animals, cars or trees.
In this new era of parallel computing, if a company wants to release a software product that fully exploits the capabilities of the latest parallel hardware available in the market, surely it has to invest more money and resources than they were required in the past.
