You might have read our post about Amazon Web Services here and how awesome they are but did you know that they might even be in your city and even your neighborhood? In addition to hosting countless on-demand cloud computing platforms for individuals, companies and governments, AWS helps service many of Amazon’s test programs.
One of the most recent test programs that Amazon is working on is Amazon Rekognition, their facial recognition software which has countless uses in today’s society. Orlando was chosen as a pilot city for this program about six months ago. When the contract ended in June, it was decided that the city would continue to test the facial recognition software in an extended pilot that uses video streams from City-owned cameras and the photos of seven participating police officers who have volunteered to participate. After the next round of testing, Orlando will decide whether or not to procure the software for city-wide use.
