Falling costs of imaging technologies, processing, data storage, and networking have led to an explosion in the use of facial recognition technologies previously used almost exclusively by governments at border checkpoints and around other high value and sensitive locations. Increasingly, private companies are using these technologies, usually paired with other technologies and data for commercial purposes.
