The Public Administration and Civil Service Bureau (SAFP) announced on Sunday that the government will introduce facial recognition technology as one of the ways to identify users at its e-services.
The bureau underlined that the facial technology will enable residents to get access to e-government services “more quickly and more conveniently”.
SAFP Director Kou Peng Kuan made the remarks during a press conference which briefed the media about the bureau’s upcoming work to push ahead with e-government services. A new law regulating the government’s e-services, which was passed by the legislature early this year, took effect on Sunday.
Kou pointed out that the new law provides the legal basis for various kinds of e-government services to get off the ground, including enabling the legality of electronic documents and notifications issued by the government. He pledged that his bureau will constantly make e-government services more convenient for residents.
Kou said that his bureau would introduce facial recognition technology as one of the government’s e-services identification ways, in conjunction with the Identification Services Bureau (DSI).
Kou stressed that only the Identification Services Bureau (DSI) will be authorised to access and verify residents’ facial recognition information, adding that the DSI has established a system to ensure the safety of the facial recognition information.
