DHS Perfecting Facial Recognition System "BOSS"

The Department of Homeland Security’s latest surveillance tool is the Biometric Optical Surveillance System, or BOSS, and consists of two cameras that are capable of taking stereoscopic images of people’s faces. Facial recognition technology matches the 3-D pictures captured and compares them to images stored in the system’s database, like driver’s license photos. Privacy advocates have expressed their concerns regarding the technology, and RT’s Adriana Usero explains the latest developments in surveillance.
