NY DMV Improves Facial Recognition Technology

By Jason Weinstein.
New York is upgrading technology at the Department of Motor Vehicles to fight fraud and identity theft.

New software will boost the agency's facial recognition technology in an effort to confirm the identities of those looking to change, renew, or obtain more than one license or non-driver ID.

The facial recognition program also focuses on for-hire and commercial drivers. The state says they have the potential to put more people in danger.
