Central Florida City Continues To Test Facial Recognition W/ Authorities

The City of Orlando will continue testing using Amazon's facial recognition software to assist law enforcement officers.  

City leaders announced the deal Thursday.  According to WKMG-TV in Orlando, the same seven Orlando police officers involved in the software's first test phase will be part of the second test phase.  

A total of eight cameras will be used in the second test phase.  Four will be at police headquarters and one at a city facility.  

There will be three IRIS cameras in other spots throughout the city.  

The cameras send video to Amazon, whose software tries to match the images with pre-set images or photographs loaded into its system.
