Qantas have seen their Future. It’s Facial Recognition

And it’s their biggest technology play ever

Most passengers will be familiar with the facial recognition cameras that are widespread through our international airports in Australia. For the international traveller it’s something of a normality walking into the glass box at immigration, while the cameras scan your face and check you against your passport details on the immigration database.
