Dubai airport uses passengers' eyes instead of passports

Dubai airport is the busiest international road in the world. It has another feature of the world of science fiction, the iris scanner, which can be used to verify a person's identity and remove the need to interact with people when entering or leaving the country.

This is the latest artificial intelligence program launched by the United Arab Emirates during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Dubai Airport is the main hub between East and West, and the program became available to all passengers last month.

In recent years, airports around the world have rushed to adopt time-saving facial recognition technologies.

But Emirati officials said: The iris scanning has been improved at Dubai Airport by using automated gates, as it can link the iris data to the country's facial recognition database so that passengers do not need ID cards or boarding passes.

The authorities added: The extraordinary partnership between Emirates Airlines and Dubai Immigration strengthened the data and quickly transported passengers on board.

Major General Obaid Muhair bin Suroor, Deputy Director of the Residency and Foreign Affairs Department, said: The future is coming, and now all programs are smart and take about five to six seconds.

In accordance with Emirates' privacy policy on biodiversity, the airline links the passenger's face with other personal information (including passport and flight information) and stores it to the extent reasonable for collection purposes.

Bin Suroor pointed out that the immigration services in Dubai fully protect the personal information of travelers so that foreigners cannot see it.

In recent years, as people have questioned the accuracy of facial recognition technology, iris scanning forces people to look into the camera, and this type of scanning has become more and more popular around the world.

Iris biometrics is believed to be a more reliable surveillance camera than surveillance cameras, which can be used to remotely scan people's faces without their knowledge or consent.

The Vice President, Minister of Defense and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum) announced last month that the country is testing new techniques for facial recognition to reduce red tape in some areas of the services sector.

During the outbreak, Dubai City developed a number of technical tools to combat the virus in malls and streets, including disinfectant mists, thermal cameras, and wipes for wiping towels to check for masks and measure the temperature.

The program uses cameras to record and download people's data, as well as enter the information into the largest biometric database in the city.
