This could soon be a reality. Vuzix has teamed with leading AI and computer vision tech company TensorMark to equip businesses with facial recognition on smart glasses. 

Used in hospitals, event venues and retail outlets, a person’s scan tests results could be displayed in real-time. Users would have to opt-in to this technology.

Breaking the second wave

Individuals who give permission will have their scan test results stored in the cloud. 

Such capabilities will make life easier for security and healthcare personnel. To protect society against a second wave, these front-line workers must be equipped with the most sophisticated (hands-free) tech possible.  

TensorMark is collaborating with over 200 physician offices on this initiative.
