Face recognition, a technology to bolster security at G20 Summit in Bali

In a few days, the G20 summit will take place in Indonesia, and it appears that Indonesia's preparations as host have been very thorough. Considering that the guests are not only extremely important people (VVIPs), but also world leaders of major nations, security is, of course, one of the most important aspects. The success of Indonesia's G20 Presidency in Bali bolsters confidence in Indonesia's ability to organize a major international event, namely the G20 Summit.

In this regard, the National Police have mobilized security technology resources to guarantee the success of Bali's major agenda. Face recognition is one of the technological tools used by the National Police to ensure the safety of the G20 Summit. Face recognition is a technology that can be used for various purposes to identify a person's face. The investigation of or search for suspects in a case is one of them.

It has been determined that Face Recognition technology has an almost perfect accuracy rate of 99.97 percent. The police database is linked to this facial recognition technology system. The number of people who visited the location can be determined, along with their identities. According to information provided by the cybersecurity company Kaspersky, facial recognition technology will become increasingly accurate over time. Initially, a camera equipped with this technology will recognize the face of the targeted individual. The face will then be thoroughly analyzed using 2D or 3D imaging technology.

There is some data collected here, including data on the shape of the face, eyes, and nose, among other characteristics. In addition, the various facial data will be converted into digital data or information and later compared with other facial data in a database or system. To determine the final result, the system then employs an algorithm to compare the newly captured facial data with previously stored facial data. The algorithm is used so that face recognition technology can quickly and precisely adjust the facial data in the database.

In April 2018, Chinese police were able to apprehend criminals at the site of a music concert held in Nanchang, China, demonstrating the effectiveness of face recognition technology in the prevention of potential crimes. The perpetrator was apprehended after the police identified him through a number of cameras installed throughout the concert venue. The cameras are equipped with facial recognition technology so that they can identify the faces of the perpetrators among the 60,000 concertgoers of one of Hong Kong's most famous celebrities, singer Jacky Cheung. can automatically detect and anticipate early every movement of people quickly and precisely.
