Some scientists are trying to apply face recognition technology to identify and capture criminals outside the field. Recently, from the National Human Genome Research Institute (National Human Genome Research Institute) the team developed a new face recognition technology, in non Caucasians diagnosed a "rare genetic disorder Digeorge syndrome".
Digeorge syndrome is a disease caused by human chromosome 22, which causes a series of complications and pathological information. But before the onset of the disease can be discriminated in different races through facial features.
NHGRI, a geneticist from Paul, explains: "the form of human malformation syndrome is not the same everywhere in the world." Kruszka. It is difficult for even experienced clinicians to diagnose the genetic syndrome of non - European species." This time you can use facial recognition technology.
NHGRI's team has developed a method of face diagnosis, which has a 96.6% success rate in the study, in the light of photographs of patients with rare diseases in Africa, Asia and Latin america. The team also said the technique could also be used in the diagnosis of down syndrome.
Although the technology of facial diagnosis is not yet mature, the scientists plan to study in depth until it can help medical workers all over the world. One day, doctors will be able to get only the patient's photos of the face analysis information and diagnostic results.
