Facial recognition tech reveals Polish woman is NOT Maddie McCann
Facial recognition technology has revealed that the Polish woman who claims to be British toddler Madeline McCann is probably not the missing girl who was snatched from her parents’ holiday villa in 2007.
Julia Faustyna, 21, did not match photos of Maddie in a facial recognition comparison of the two.
According to the Swiss tabloid Blick, AI company Ava-X ran photos of Faustyna and Maddie through its Iris facial recognition software.
“It’s practically impossible for the young Pole to be Maddie,” Ava-X’s co-founder Christian Fehrlin said.
Fehrlin said that while photos from Faustyna’s childhood and more recent snapshots matched, a comparison between the Pole and Maddie did not come close. Earlier, Faustyna used photos of herself and Maddie noting that both had a brown smudge on their right iris.
