South Korea to Test AI-Powered Facial Recognition to Track Covid Cases

South Korea will soon use artificial intelligence, facial recognition and CCTV cameras to track the people infected with Covid-19. The system will use AI algorithms and facial recognition technology to examine footage collected by over 10,820 CCTV cameras and track an infected person’s activities, or anyone they had contacted with, and even whether they were wearing a mask, according to a 110-page business plan submitted to the Ministry of Science and ICT.

Governments around the world are using new technologies and extended legal regulations to stop the infection of coronavirus. China, Russia, India, Poland, Japan and US are among the one to have launched or at least experimented with facial recognition systems to track people having Covid-19 virus.
