The Train station of Suedkreuz, in Berlin, tested a new face recognition technology to verify the identity of the passengers.

The innovative system installed as a means of security and in the anti-terrorist investigations and criminal, will run for six months in the German station.

Technological progress must not stop in our security services,” said Tuesday the interior minister Thomas de Maiziere said in a statement.

“If the program turns out to be reliable, you should be able to be used for serious crimes and in other places where they have surveillance cameras,” he said.

For his part, the president of the College of Lawyers of Germany, Ulrich Schellenberg, rejected the technological measure and said that “not everything that is feasible from a technological point of view is not necessarily something that we want to have as a society”.
