      Face Recognition Facial Expressions Categorised Using New Software

    Some rather nice work there it would seem.
    Researchers at the Department of Artificial Intelligence (DIA) of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid’s School of Computing (FIUPM) have, in conjunction with Madrid’s Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, developed an algorithm that is capable of processing 30 images per second to recognize a person’s facial expressions in real time and categorize them as one of six prototype expressions: anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness and surprise.

      Face Recognition Face Recognition-based Authenitcation in UH

    The University of Houston is doing some commendable job. They use rich facial image models, but it's not clear why the article focuses on the use of recognition to match it against a record (which is neither new nor innovative).
    Face recognition as a unique biometric is growing slowly in certain corporate and consumer applications, but researchers at the University of Houston (UH) are trying to make the technology far more ubiquitous and secure: they want it to replace the dozens of personal identification numbers (PIN), passwords and credit card numbers everyone uses every day.

      Face Recognition Image Search Named Immature by German Police

    On the face of it (pun), facial-features recognition technology meets doubt.
    The assessment of the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) according to which biometric visual-image search systems are not advanced enough to be used by the police to search for persons has led to mixed reactions.

      Face Recognition Face Recognition Technology Comes to Australia's ePassports

    Australia appears to be the next country (among several) to use biometrics in this way.
    "Despite a series of technical hiccups, the first public trials of Australia's biometric SmartGate project are set to take place in Brisbane in August, six months behind schedule."
