RealNetworks, which develops RealPlayer, one of the famous media players in 90s, today develops a facial recognition platform SAFR.
This year SAFR received a grant from the US Air Force to develop its AI-powered analytics.
Note SAFR is proprietary and not #FreeSoftware. RealMedia (.rm), the file format for RealPlayer, is proprietary as well.
But it is not right to compare a media file format with a facial recognition platform. It needs to be regulated by the public.
