On March 12, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine started working with a face recognition system from Clearview AI. This information was shared by the news agency Reutersreferring to the head of the company Hoan Ton-Theta (Hoan Ton-That).
Ukraine gained access to the system after the invasion of the Russian Federation on the territory of the country.
The Clearview AI algorithm has provided the ability to identify the identities of the Russian military, fight disinformation, identify the dead and check people at checkpoints.
Also, Clearview AI reported that the company did not offer its services to Russia.
According to the founder of Clearview, there are more than 2 billion photos from VKontakte in the Clearview AI database. Presumably, this will make it easier to identify the dead compared to fingerprint recognition.
It should be noted that the ClearView AI software entered the top ten most accurate systems face recognition.
