Smart glasses are linked to an internal database that stores information about criminals. And according to the report, they have been successful in identifying seven people suspected of human trafficking and hit-and-run accidents, as well as another 26 people using fake IDs, as of 5 February.

It says officers are able to respond before suspects are able to blend back into a crowd, helping them to maintain contact in any pursuit. Officers wearing the special glasses are stationed at four entrances to the train station.

China now boasts the largest monitoring system in the world, with approximately 176 million CCTV cameras in public and private hands. The cameras now has some setbacks with facial recognition tech, as they're stationary devices and deliver blurry imagery.

North and South Korea's ice hockey team lose in debut
Moon is known to be hoping that the US and North Korea could hold talks in the South when their high-ranking officials visit here. Twenty-two North Korean athletes will compete in the Olympics , including 12 who will play in a unified women's ice hockey team.

Chinese Police have started using facial recognition glasses to aid their fight against crime and criminals.

Given that the lunar new year is one of the busiest travel periods in China where more than 389 million train trips are expected, the ambitious plan to augment the use of augmented reality (AR) and Big Data could work wonders for China and its population. During this holiday, hundreds of millions (if not billions) of Chinese people will be traveling across the country to get together with their family. Many of these feature some form of AI, including facial recognition. Furthermore, it also allows the government to control the movement of minorities with confiscated identity documents who often have to wait years to acquire passports.

As ever, some known bugs remain, including a pause of up to 90 minutes at the 88% mark during the installation process. Our best guess is that the password-less mode will be available when the rumored "S Mode" is activated.

Nee added, "Since there are already many surveillance cameras in many parts of China already, this move to equip individual police officers with facial-recognition cameras probably shouldn't be seen as a major shift in policing strategy". Maybe they will be pulling off your personal information.

Skewed results aren't the only concern that comes with giving law enforcement wearable surveillance: many have also pointed out that the devices could lend themselves to racial profiling, and even more broadly, have the potential to infringe on citizens' privacy.
