Facial-recognition technology goes mainstream at Dublin Airport

The biometric gates at Dublin Airport are using facial-recognition technology to speed passengers through border control. While it now gets passengers through automatic border control gates in as few as 8 seconds, it doesn't bode well for privacy campaigners who see this as a harbinger for widespread, general public use of this technology. “Many major European airports are adopting a similar trend towards the deployment of automated gates for immigration control functions to enhance passengers’ experience on arrival at airports while also strengthening border security,” says Alan Shatter, Ireland’s minister for justice, equality and defense.
