OGCIO clarifies online rumour

The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) noticed that an image captured from a TV news clip may mislead viewers to believe that the technology shown is one of the functions of smart lampposts.

The OGCIO today (July 18) clarified that the image in question featured technology that is used to count the number of people at a given location. This technology was showcased at the Smart Government Pavilion at the International ICT Expo this April, and is not related to the Multi-functional Smart Lampposts pilot scheme. The OGCIO reiterated that the lampposts will not employ this technology and do not carry any facial recognition function.
