Facial scan is coming to airports. Are we ready for it? 

In this episode, Marcello Sukhdeo talks about the subject of facial scan at airports. If you are flying to Florida in the next little while you might be subjected to a facial scan. Is this technology ripe and ready for this type of large scale use?   

Show Notes 

Orlando International Airport, the busiest airport in Florida where about 6 million people pass through every year is looking to become the first airport in the US to use facial scan of passengers on all arriving and departing international flights, including U.S. citizens. 

This is the first airport that will try to scan all passengers. There are some airports like in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, New York and Washington which are already using face scans for some departing international flights, but they don’t involve all international travelers at the airports. In the case with Orlando, this program will be expanded to include all passengers.  

The question of privacy comes into play here.
