Massachusetts man loses driver’s license after face is rejected 

WHAT: A Massachusetts man’s driver’s license was revoked by that state’s Registry of Motor Vehicles because a new facial-recognition system rejected his photograph.

WHY: The system evidently concluded that his picture looked too much like that of another driver and thus assumed his application was fraudulent.

HOW COME: The Boston Globe reported that the system, which was installed as an anti-terrorism measure, has set in motion more than 1,000 state police investigations.
