Facial recognition and other tech at ThoughtWorks


From facial recognition technology to digital transformation for councils, ThoughtWorks is at the cutting edge of tech.

Jonathan Symcox spoke with UK north market principal Phil O’Neill at the launch of the global giant’s digital hub at The Federation in Manchester – and was surprised when the firm’s facial recognition tech rapidly identified him!

In this video, O’Neill explains the thinking behind it and also describes the Signposts system it has developed in partnership with Stockport Council, an open source project which could prove the antidote to budget cuts at local government level.
