"Churchix Facial Recognition Software for Event Attendance"
"Churchix is a face recognition based event attendance tracking software. Developed as a desktop application, Churchix identifies event attending members in videos and photos. All you need to do is enrol high quality photos of your members into the software data base, then connect a live video USB camera or upload recorded videos or photos – and Churchix will identify your members!"
"Churchix facial recognition software is designed for Church administrators and event managers who want to save the pain of manually tracking their members attendance to their events."
"First of its kind, Churchix provides you with accurate data on members attendance in your events and services. The software also allows you to sort and manage your videos and photos."
"Press Room – Churchix Facial Recognition Software"
"Face recognition software raises honest concerns over privacy. Some are afraid of a “Big Brother” mentality in which a Government spies on its citizens. Some are afraid of what they call “Identity Theft”, and many just don’t like the idea that someone might recognize them without their consent."
"Although we fully understand these concerns, we think that they are mostly a bad feeling derived from a possible abuse of the technology rather than actual treats (sic). On the contrary, face recognition software helps catching the bad guys, and ironically prevents identity thefts by running a duplicate test and allowing the user to track fraudsters who steal identities but use their own photo (think about a crook coming to the bank to cash out your check with a fake ID after replacing your photo). Face recognition technology provides a great added value, but we know you can’t really argue with a bad feeling."
