Can biometric systems foil terrorists? Probably not–but try telling that to Wall Street.

That’s an interesting statistic. If a terrorist is one person in a million, and the software is incorrect once every 10,000 faces it scans, then 1000 people will be identified inaccurately for every one terrorist who is caught. And once you’ve been inaccurately identified, how do you go about proving it isn’t you? Think about that!
