New Zealand considering use of facial recognition software to curb problem gambling

May 26, 2018 8:55 AM Robert Mann New Zealand gambling stakeholders are considering their efforts to curb problem gambling by expanding the use of facial recognition technology. The system monitors people entering gaming rooms and checks their face against a voluntary photo database of problem gamblers who have asked to be barred from certain venues. When someone is a match, staff are alerted to check the person's ID. The New Zealand-based website radionz.co.nz reports fifteen gaming venues are using the facial recognition technology, with six other venues installing the system in a few weeks.
