Delta said facial recognition technology is a "natural next step" after self-service innovations like ticketing kiosks and check-in via the Fly Delta Mobile app as it seeks to streamline airport processes.

The Delta bag machines are one of a handful of facial recognition systems being employed throughout the transportation industry. In March, British Airways said it is introducing self-boarding gates with facial recognition for domestic flights in the UK.
Delta hopes your face will be the key to a faster check-in process. And as more people become more comfortable (or at least tolerant) with the idea that privacy doesn't carry much weight at USA airports, the use of these types of scanning processes is likely to grow more frequent.
