Proof China’s Living in 3019: A 1-Sec Face Scan Reveals Your Flight Gate inside the Airport


Share post:

We’ve all heard stories of China’s technological advancements, haven’t we? And how face recognition is really gaining a lot of traction across different walks of Chinese life.

If you needed any proof to convince China’s technological might over most countries of the world, it doesn’t get any better (or scarier) than this. It involves a guy using an airport help desk to find out where his flight gate will be.

Twitter user Matthew Brennan’s simple 22 second video has crossed over 1.2 million views in just over a day, and it shows him doing something that all of us do when we are at an airport, trying to catch a flight.

We all either have a boarding pass (printed or within our phone) with our flight detail, we try to find that flight on massive leaderboards splashed across the airport terminal, trying to verify and walk towards our assigned flight gate number.

The process is in China is far less cumbersome, as demonstrated by Matthew Brennan on his Twitter profile.

He approaches an automated information portal, which has a giant circle in between — very similar to the Face ID set up screen on iPhone X or similar face recognition step in OnePlus 6T.

Within one or two seconds, the guy’s face is scanned and recognized and his flight information is displayed on the screen, along with a detailed map of where he is and where he needs to go to get to his flight gate.

This is a great example of how convenient face recognition can be inside an airport terminal. But how easy is it to misuse this same wonderful technology?
