Arizona citizens are now in a government database that uses facial recognition technology to track them for getting a driver’s license. Photos taken at the Motor Vehicle Division are scanned by a proprietary algorithm that analyzes facial features, then compares the photo to 19 million others. If recognized, the system will flag it for further review. Remember READ ID? It was passed in 2005 in Congress in response 9.11. This Arizona system complies with the federal REAL ID act, which requires increased standards for identification. Many people who don’t know their faces will be matched up against millions. All States must adopt REAL ID standards by 10. 1, 2020, or their residents will need alternate identification to travel which may include carrying a passport domestically.
