Facial recognition technology on the cards in Zimbabwe


Zimbabwean based water meter supply company, Brains at Work Consulting (Private) Limited has been given authorisation by a Chinese company, Clou Global to distribute facial recognition software in Africa including Zimbabwe as part of efforts to combat the global pandemic, Coronavirus.   

This facial recognition software, which will come along with a temperature scan, is a technology that learns the unique features of an individual’s face and has the ability to recognise each person’s face based on the slight differences and unique features of each face.

The software can support live anti-counterfeiting, based on facial biometric recognition and it cannot be replaced and copied to prevent counterfeiting operations, according to Brains at Work.
