New Delhi: India has invited Saudi Arabia to invest in its strategic oil storage even as it looks to resurrect a $44 billion (Rs 3.08 lakh crore) refinery project with the world’s largest oil producer after the BJP-ruled Maharashtra government denied land at the initial site. Saudi Oil Minister Khalid Al Falih, on his second visit to India in three weeks, discussed with its Indian counterpart Dharmendra Pradhan the 60 million tonne (MT) a year mega oil refinery cum petrochemical complex, whose initial allocated land in coastal Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra was denotified by the state government earlier this month, as part of electoral understanding between the ruling BJP and Shiv Sena.

The two minister held talks late last night. Shiv Sena had opposed the project at Ratnagiri district and the BJP agreed to its demand of shifting out the project as part of electoral understanding for the ensuing Lok Sabha polls. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to CustomsNo alternate site of the project has yet been identified and the statement did not elaborate on steps to be taken for implementation of the project. Saudi Aramco and its partner ADNOC of UAE have signed agreements to take 50 per cent stake in the project. The remaining is held by public sector oil firms – IOC, BPCL and HPCL. Pradhan invited Saudi Arabia to invest in India’s strategic oil reserves. “Invited HE @Khalid_AlFalih to partner in India’s Strategic Reserves Program and further enhance Saudi investments in India’s refining & petrochemical sectors. Strategic engagements in energy will mutually benefit both our countries and further bolster our bilateral ties,” he tweeted after the meeting. The official statement said: “Saudi Arabia’s participation in Indian Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) program was also discussed.” India has built 5.33 MT of emergency storage enough to meet its oil needs for 9.5 days, in underground rock caverns in Mangalore and Padur in Karnataka, and Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh. It has allowed foreign oil companies to store oil in the storages on the condition that the stockpile can be used by New Delhi in case of an emergency. Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has hired half of the 1.5 million tonne strategic oil storage at Mangalore and 2.5 million tonne Padur facility. In Phase-II, India plans to build an additional 6.5 million tonne facilities at Chandikhol in Odisha and Padur, which is expected to augment the emergency cover against any supply disruption by another 11.5 days. India, which meets 83 per cent of its oil needs through imports, built the storages as insurance for any disruption in supplies. It has the right of first refusal to buy the crude oil stored in the facilities in case of an emergency. The statement said that the visit of the Saudi Oil Minister was a follow up the first State visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud last month. “Both the ministers agreed to take concrete steps for early implementation of the decisions taken in the oil and gas sector during the visit of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to India last month,” it said. The visit, it said, reflects the intensifying engagement between the two countries in the hydrocarbon sector. Saudi Arabia is the second largest supplier of crude and LPG to India. In 2017-18, India’s crude oil imports from Saudi Arabia were 36.8 MT, accounting for 16.7 per cent of its total imports. read more

Carrier says it has deal with Trump to keep jobs in Indiana President-elect Donald Trump, center, eats dinner with Mitt Romney, right, and Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus at Jean-Georges restaurant, Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016, in New York. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci) by Julie Pace, The Associated Press Posted Nov 29, 2016 7:12 pm MDT Last Updated Nov 30, 2016 at 8:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – Air conditioning company Carrier Corp. said Tuesday that it had reached a deal with President-elect Donald Trump to keep nearly 1,000 jobs in Indiana. Trump and Vice-President-elect Mike Pence planned to travel to the state Thursday to unveil the agreement alongside company officials.Trump confirmed the meeting on Twitter late Tuesday, promising a “Great deal for workers!”Trump spent much of his campaign pledging to keep companies like Carrier from moving jobs overseas. His focus on manufacturing jobs contributed to his unexpected appeal with working-class voters in states like Michigan, which has long voted for Democrats in presidential elections.The details of the agreement were unclear. Carrier tweeted that the company was “pleased to have reached a deal” with Trump and Pence to keep the jobs in Indianapolis.A transition official confirmed that the president-elect and Pence, who is ending his tenure as Indiana governor, would appear with Carrier officials Thursday. The official insisted on anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the trip ahead of an official announcement.Trump said last week that he was “making progress” on trying to get Carrier to stay in Indiana.In February, Carrier said it would shutter its Indianapolis plant employing 1,400 workers and move its manufacturing to Mexico. The plant’s workers would have been laid off over three years starting in 2017.United Technologies Electronic Controls also announced then that it planned to move its Huntington manufacturing operations to a new plant in Mexico, costing the northeastern Indiana city 700 jobs by 2018. Those workers make microprocessor-based controls for the HVAC and refrigeration industries.Carrier and UTEC are both units of Hartford, Connecticut-based United Technologies Corp. — which also owns Pratt & Whitney, a big supplier of fighter jet engines that relies in part on U.S. military contracts.In a September debate against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, Trump railed against Carrier’s plans.“So many hundreds and hundreds of companies are doing this,” Trump said. “We have to stop our jobs from being stolen from us. We have to stop our companies from leaving the United States.”Carrier wasn’t the only company Trump assailed during the campaign. He pledged to give up Oreos after Nabisco’s parent, Mondelez International, said it would replace nine production lines in Chicago with four in Mexico. He criticized Ford after the company said it planned to invest $2.5 billion in engine and transmission plants in Mexico.Chuck Jones, president of United Steelworkers Local 1999, which represents Carrier workers, said of Tuesday’s news: “I’m optimistic, but I don’t know what the situation is. I guess it’s a good sign. … You would think they would keep us in the loop. But we know nothing.”The event Thursday in Indiana will be a rare public appearance for Trump, who has spent nearly his entire tenure as president-elect huddled with advisers and meeting with possible Cabinet secretaries. He plans to make other stops later this week as part of what advisers have billed as a “thank you” tour for voters who backed him in the presidential campaign.___Follow Julie Pace at http://twitter.com read more
She has never received maternity pay, holiday pay, sick pay or pension, and is currently on a contract that allows bosses to sack her “without reason”. … While viewers may have assumed that Ms Gosling was a member of BBC staff, in fact she has never been given a permanent job. The BBC asked a pregnant presenter to work on the day her baby was due and attempted to cut her pay once she returned from maternity leave, a court has heard. Joanna Gosling, a regular face on the BBC’s news channels for almost 20 years, broke down during a tribunal as she accused the corporation of operating a “two-tier system” in which some stars are lavished with benefits while the rest are left with no job security. read more

Samsung part à la conquête du marché des imprimantes professionnellesSamsung souhaite s’imposer comme leader du marché des imprimantes destinées aux professionnels. Pour ce faire, la marque coréenne mise sur l’économie d’énergie et les performances de leurs machines. Les intentions annoncées de Samsung étaient claire : la marque souhaite devenir le numéro “Un” mondial des ventes d’imprimantes à destination des professionnels (le B2B, Business to Business). Elle souhaite atteindre cet ambitieux objectif grâce à sa nouvelle gamme d’imprimantes laser, dévoilée mardi dernier lors d’une conférence à Milan. Samsung a mis en avant les performances de ses onze nouvelles imprimantes et copieurs, en indiquant qu’elles étaient toutes équipées d’un processeur Dual Core allant de 533 MHz pour les premiers prix à 1 GHz pour les gammes supérieures. Elles peuvent toutes se connecter au réseau Wi-Fi et les utilisateurs pourront lancer une impression depuis leur smartphone, via l’application Samsung Mobile Print. Les copieurs A3 embarquent un processeur “tout-en-un”, développé à partir de leur technologie des semi-conducteurs. Il permet ainsi de réduire le coût énergétique, tout en garantissant des meilleures performances. La machine ne consomme alors que 0.189 kWh en état de veille, soit “une réduction de 60% comparée aux copieurs A3 conventionnels”, assure la marque.

Stay on target David Saint-Jacques, a Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut, is testing a “smart” jersey designed to monitor vital signs in space.Saint-Jacques, who’s currently at the International Space Station (ISS), will wear the Astroskin Bio-Monitor System during his six-month space mission, said a CSA press release. With this wearable garment, scientists can better understand how a microgravity environment might impact astronauts’ health.Carré Technologies, a Canadian wearable sensors company, developed the Bio-Monitor System for the CSA. Unlike other medical devices, the Bio-Monitor System isn’t bulky and doesn’t disrupt astronauts’ daily activities, including sleeping and exercise. The easy-to-wear garment measures pulse and electrical activity of the heart, blood pressure, breathing rate and volume, skin temperature, blood oxygen saturation, and physical activity levels.Over the next few days, @Astro_DavidS will finish setting up Bio-Monitor, a smart shirt system designed to track astronauts’ vital signs in space: https://t.co/MWkeRkFimC. Photo: CSA/NASA. pic.twitter.com/uXmc4qtjJx— CanadianSpaceAgency (@csa_asc) January 29, 2019Here’s how it works: The Bio-Monitor System is designed to be a comfy garment for astronauts: It has adjustable straps to place small metal sensors against the skin, so scientists can receive accurate physiological readings. Before an astronaut exercises, they can use a tablet application to choose the type of fitness they’ll engage in and track their vital signs throughout the session. Once they’re done, astronauts can disconnect the battery pack and plug it into a base, which then downloads the data to Earth via the ISS’ communications system.This Bio-Monitor system could also be used to benefit people on Earth as well: The CSA and Carré Technologies aim to use this technology to help Canadians who have limited access to medical support, work in dangerous environments, and compete in professional sports in the future.More on Geek.com:Under Armour Will Design Space Suits for Virgin GalacticAmerican Toilet on the Space Station Burst, Russian Media ReportsNASA Hopes Space Mice Can Provide Anti-Aging Treatments for Humans Russia’s Humanoid Robot Returns Safely to EarthCIMON Returns to Earth After 14 Months on ISS read more

As mentioned above, a key innovation that fueled their research, notes Awschalom, was working with Dobrovitski in developing protocols for manipulating the NV center’s spin that mitigate its interactions with its magnetic environment while maintaining sensitivity to thermally induced changes in the spin states. As the magnetic environment is the primary noise source in these measurements, mitigating its effects allowed them to convert small changes in temperature into large changes in NV center’s fluorescence. “The idea of using the quantum states of a single spin for thermometry is very exciting,” says Toyli. “What we’re really doing is adapting ideas from quantum information science to enable sensitive temperature measurements at the nanoscale.”In addition, the researchers’ findings suggest that the quantum coherence of single spins could be practically leveraged for sensitive thermometry in a wide variety of biological and microscale systems, such as probing intracellular thermal gradients. “Our work showed that one can use an atomic-scale impurity in diamond to measure temperature shifts of much less than 0.1 K through the defect’s fluorescence. If similar results could be obtained with NV centers in nanoscale volumes of diamond – that is, in nanodiamonds – then this would enable sensitive thermometry in a wide variety of biological and microscale systems.”In such a system, Awschalom explains, the sensor’s spatial resolution is defined by the size of the nanodiamonds, which have been shown to have NV centers in particles as small as five nanometers. Diamond’s properties – biocompatibility, mechanical hardness and high thermal conductivity – make this system a very promising thermal sensor. “One can imagine applications where nanodiamonds are inserted into living cells and used to image intrinsic thermal gradients, introduced into microfluidic circuits and used to monitor the temperature of chemical reactions in the circuits,” Awschalom illustrates, “or where NV centers are incorporated in nanoscale pillars as part of a scanning probe system – as are already being built for magnetometry applications – and used to map out thermal gradients on a surface.”Looking forward, says Awschalom, a primary challenge for the field is to achieve better spin properties for NV centers in nanodiamonds, since these typically have comparably worse properties than the NV centers in bulk diamond studied in this work. However, while conventional nanodiamond fabrication methods are quite crude, Awschalom notes that recent advances suggest it may be possible to use top-down-fabrication methods to produce nanodiamonds with high-quality spins.The researchers are also focused on optimizing the delivery of the gigahertz-frequency magnetic fields used to manipulate the spin in order to minimize unintentional heating of fluidic samples. “We’re excited by the prospect of applying spin-based thermometers in a variety of applications,” Awschalom concludes. “Specific examples include not just noninvasive thermometry in cellular and microfluidic environments, but also high-temperature scanning thermal microscopy.” This document is subject to copyright.

C, D, and E show TE, TCPMG, and TCPMG-2 measurements, respectively, performed at 297.00 K (SI Appendix). The uncertainties in IPL, estimated from the photon shot noise, are ∼0.005. To induce oscillations in IPL to clearly observe the signal envelope, the average microwave carrier frequency (ΩREF) was detuned from D by ∼0.5 MHz. The solid red lines are best fits to the data and the 1/e decay times (τ1/e) are noted on the plots. The observed coherences are in good agreement with numerical modeling (solid green lines). For the TCPMG-2 sequence the coherence time is ninefold greater than T2*. For these experimental conditions we infer the thermal sensitivity (η) is 54 ± 1 mK·Hz−1/2. Enhancements in the photon collection efficiency could improve η to ∼15 mK·Hz−1/2 (Methods).

This results in sharp resonances in the defects’ photoluminescence intensity as a function of the frequency of the microwave radiation, with the frequency dependent on external variables such as magnetic fields, electric fields, and, in this work, temperature. The researchers also showed that these techniques can be applied over a broad temperature range and in both finite and near-zero magnetic field environments, suggesting that single spin quantum coherence could be leveraged for sensitive thermometry in a broad range of biological and microscale systems.Prof. David D. Awschalom discusses the research that he, graduate students David M. Toyli, Charles F. de las Casas, David J. Christle, and Ames Laboratory scientist Viatcheslav V. Dobrovitski conducted. While Awschalom tells Phys.org that fluorescence thermometry is a well-established technique, and that millimeter-scale fluorescence thermometers are mature technologies, most recently-developed nanoscale optical probes lack sufficient sensitivity for intracellular thermometry and other target applications. However, Awschalom notes that the researchers’ new approach leverages the fact that the diamond NV center’s fluorescence correlates with the quantum state of its intrinsic magnetic moment, or spin, to achieve much better thermal sensitivities than are offered by conventional approaches.The scientists also demonstrated that their techniques are extremely versatile, in that that they can be applied over a broad temperature range spanning room temperature to 500 Kelvin (440° Fahrenheit), as well as in both finite and near-zero magnetic field environments. “It’s quite unique to have a technology that operates based on the principles of quantum physics at these temperatures,” notes Awschalom, “since most quantum devices are restricted to operate only near absolute zero.” Moreover, he points out, it may be possible in future experiments to use the NV center as a multifunctional probe capable of measuring both magnetic fields and temperature. (Phys.org) —Thermometry – the measurement of temperature – is critical to a wide range of applications, including many industrial processes, biomedical monitoring, and environmental regulatory systems. However, measuring temperature in the presence of high RF (radio frequency) or other electromagnetic fields – such as are found in aerospace, automotive and medical systems – cannot be accomplished using electrical thermometric probes. In these cases, optical sensors that allow scientists to perform thermometry based on thermally-driven changes in ﬂuorescence (brightness) are the instrument of choice. While typical ﬂuorescence thermometers use millimeter-scale optical probes, smaller devices are needed to measure temperatures in intracellular and other nanoscale environments. As a result, the field has witnessed the development of nanoscale ﬂuorescence thermometers based on quantum dots, rare-earth ions and nanogels. read more

Ruta La Paz III is a perfect opportunity for participants of all ages and skill levels to come together in the name of healthy sport, while raising funds for scholarships at La Paz Community School. See you on Nov. 10. More info to follow.The aftermath of the 7.6-magnitude earthquake, which occurred on Wednesday, Sept. 5, at 8:42 a.m., has everyone on edge, wondering when the next big one will strike. La Paz Community School had very little damage compared to the Country Day School (CDS), whose classroom ceilings came down. La Paz was opened the next day and CDS was closed for the remainder of the week for repairs, but classes started back on Monday, Sept. 9, as scheduled. Many local businesses suffered damage but none had to close down. The Public Works and Transport Ministry made a declaration, unbeknownst to many, to take down all public or business signage not on private property. This action started on Sept. 11, and no matter what size the signs were, they were cut down and tossed in the back of the truck, to the dismay of many who knew nothing about this.Many locals were contacted by phone when the news spread, so they would have time to save their signs. Signs are expensive, and to have them removed without notice was problematic.–Babe Hopkinstbabehopkins@gmail.com Facebook Comments read more
New research, by academics at Maynooth University and Loughborough University in the UK, has found that tropical cyclones followed by deadly heat is an emerging weather threat that could put millions of people at risk if global temperatures continue to rise.The scientists hope their findings will act as a ‘stark warning’ and raise awareness of the previously hidden hazard so measures can be put in place to protect vulnerable communities.Until now, little was known about the possibility of deadly heatwaves – which have temperatures that feel like 40.6°C and above– following major tropical cyclones (rapidly rotating, very intense storm systems that form over tropical oceans and have winds of hurricane force).The team comprising Dr Tom Matthews and Professor Rob Wilby at Loughborough, together with Dr Conor Murphy, at Maynooth University, examined the tropical cyclone-deadly heat connection as it has serious potential consequences.Mega-electricity blackouts have been known to follow powerful tropical cyclones as with the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan (Philippines), 2017 Hurricane Maria (Puerto Rico) and 2012 Typhoon Bopha (Philippines). These events incurred between 3.2 and 6.1 billion customer hours of lost supply over one or two months.Damage from Hurricane Maria, San Juan, Puerto Rico. Source: Getty Images.With around 1.6 billion units in operation, air conditioning reduces vulnerability to extreme heat so populations with a heavy reliance on the units may become highly exposed in the event of power failure.The threat may also extend beyond those with loss of air conditioning as cyclones can leave millions of people without a home and relief housing may not provide a safe refuge from extreme heat.Dr Matthews, Professor Wilby and Dr Murphy worked together to assess how likely tropical cyclone-heat events are and were in the recent climate and how this likelihood may change as the earth continues to warm.They used computer models to generate future possible climates and predict extreme weather events occurring in worlds 1.5°C, 2°C and 4°C warmer than pre-industrial times (a time period used as a baseline as it is before fossil fuels were burnt on a large scale, seriously altering the climate).They also used observational records from 1979-2017 to see how hot and humid temperatures have been in the wake of previous major landfalling tropical cyclones.Pictured are historical tropical cyclone tracks that have at least a 50% chance of being followed by a deadly heatwave in different climate scenarios. E[N] is the expected number of tropical cyclone-heat hazards in a 30-year-period. (a) shows tracks in the current climate (based on 1981-2010 records), then how it changes with (b) a 1.5°C rise, (c) a 2°C rise and (d) a 4°C rise.The team found that tropical cyclone-heat hazard is already possible along some of the world’s most densely populated coastlines in our current climate, but only an estimated 1,000 people have been affected over the last 30 years and mainly in remote northwest Australia.However, their results revealed that the probability of the tropical cyclone-heat hazard will increase rapidly as the climate warms.Dr Conor Murphy, based in the ICARUS Climate Research Centre and Department of Geography at Maynooth University noted that “this is because relatively small changes in the earth’s average temperature lead to large increases in the frequency of dangerous humid heat in areas relatively close to the equator where tropical cyclones occur”.Dr Matthews, lead author of the study explained that “if the climate warms further, the rise in humid heat means potentially deadly heatwaves are more likely to occur in these locations in late summer – the time when tropical cyclones are most likely to strike”.Previous research has found that the earth is likely to warm by more than 2?°C this century, though the Paris climate agreement looks to “keep a global temperature rise this century well below 2°C above preindustrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5°C”.Through their analysis, they concluded that if temperatures were sustained at 2°C above preindustrial levels for 30 years, the number of people affected by this hazard would rise to over 2 million.For the 1.5°C warming, their figure is 1.2 million and it reaches almost 12 million if the earth’s climate were to warm to 4°C above preindustrial temperatures (and under this scenario, the researchers expect the hazard to be an annual occurrence).The researchers say the hazard could impact coastlines around the world that sit close to the equator, including the Gulf of Mexico, Philippines, Bay of Bengal (India), and northwest Australia.Prof Wilby added that “what is even more concerning is the fact the number of people affected will likely be much bigger than our predictions as we do not factor in population growth or potential changes to the cyclones themselves”.Typhoon Haiyan Damage, Tacloban. Source: Getty Images.The team’s results have been published today (Monday 22 July) in Nature Climate Change, a well-respected monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal, in a paper titled ‘An emerging tropical cyclone-deadly heat compound hazard’.The authors commented: “Our results present a simple but stark warning: with no change in tropical cyclones but plausible rises in global temperatures, potentially deadly heatwaves are more likely to follow tropical cyclones and eventually strike vulnerable populations.“Although a tropical cyclone–heat event has not yet impacted a heavily populated coastline, the likelihood is growing, and it is down to luck that more people haven’t been affected so far.“The absence of experience in dealing with such a compound hazard places those exposed communities at even greater risk.“By drawing attention to this emergent hazard, we trust that our study will stimulate further research and adaptation planning to protect those at growing risk from a tropical cyclone–heat compound event.”The full ‘An emerging tropical cyclone-deadly heat compound hazard’ paper can be accessed here. read more
By Pratik KirveFacial recognition is an advanced biometric technology that is used for identification and authentication of any individual. This technology compares the facial features captured from an image with the stored facial database. The technology is widely preferred over the rest of the biometric technologies such as voice recognition, iris recognition, skin texture recognition, and fingerprint scanning. The main reason behind this preference of choice is that facial technologies is a non-contact process and can be easily deployed by using the existing monitoring devices and cameras. Moreover, facial recognition technology is best suited for marketing and security purposes.The basic requirements for a perfect facial recognition software are convenient & frictionless, greater accuracy, automation, smarter integration, and better security. Security and surveillance greatly depend on facial recognition technology to combat terrorism and crime. This technology can also be used for issuing identity documents and the data can be integrated with other biometric technologies such as iris recognition and fingerprints. Integrating the drones with aerial cameras greatly helps the authority to monitor the mass events.Facial technology has also tremendously helped the health sector. This technology is used in tracking the patient’s use of medication more accurately and efficiently. Moreover, it can be used for detecting genetic diseases if the database is filled with adequate information. Sometimes it is used for supporting the pain management procedures too. There are various challenges faced by the healthcare professionals and facial recognition technology can help them out.The primary duty of the facial recognition technology would be to secure the hospital facilities. By scanning every one entering the hospital, law officials can easily identify an individual and add it to their database. Another valuable application of facial recognition is its real-time emotion detection. This application can be used in order to collect and analyze the data of the emotions a patient exhibit. This analysis can be helpful in determining where more attention is needed in different sections of the hospital.Healthcare professionals sometimes takes a huge chunk out of the patient’s pockets. Hence there are many individuals who pose as patients in order to gain access to free treatments and medications. In order to curb these practices, facial recognition can be very helpful. Furthermore, the technology can be used to analyze the traffic pattern.A healthcare organization can optimize the overall statistics of the visitors by detecting the pattern based on gender and age. It can be helpful for tracking the patients without the use of any physical tracking devices. It would be a piece of cake to determine whether the patients are inside the nursing home or in outpatient assisted living facilities.This technology can also be used for marketing and retail purposes. The shop owners and retailers can use this technology in order to analyze the behavioral patterns of the customers and enhance the process of purchasing. These behavioral patterns help in gaining insights on the items that the customers are most interested in. It is now possible to determine the age and gender of the customer by integrating facial recognition with artificial intelligence (AI).The sales of mobile phones have rocketed post integration with facial recognition technology. The technology has become the new marketing tool in order to gain more customers. The face ID technology also enables a variety of peripheral functions. This would include detailed animojis, that would offer you emojis with your actual facial expression along with an impressive degree of accuracy.Social media platforms have adopted this new technology to increase the number of users for their platforms. They would use this technology in order to diversify the user’s functionalities which will attract more user base. The social network has become a lifestyle and it would be very useful if personal identity can be integrated with social networking. Recently, this new idea has been proposed for integrating cloud computing services with mobile devices.The system can be easily designed and developed in the form of an application on the Android mobile devices platform. It will utilize the Face.com API for rendering image data for cloud computing services. After testing, the system could recognize around 85% of the face sample and took around 7.45 second for computing the data. It would only take as less as 1.03 seconds to get someone’s information through augmented reality translation.Several enterprises and corporation have invested in facial recognition as its benefits far exceed its drawbacks. After exhaustive research, Allied Market Research has estimated that the global facial recognition market would garner $9.6 billion by 2022, growing exponentially at a CAGR of 21.3% from 2016 to 2022. The market of facial recognition has great potential and will increase at a steady pace as new technologies and innovative products are introduced in this market.Pratik Kirve holds a bachelor degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering and currently working as a Content Writer at Allied Analytics LLP.
