Tieto trials school class registration using tags, apps and facial recognition in Swedish school

Tuesday 15 January 2019 | 13:00 CET | News
IT company Tieto said it is trialing pupil registration via tags, smartphone applications and facial recognition software. It said teachers at Anderstorp high school spend 17,280 hours per year taking the register, something which has to be done for every individual lesson under Swedish legislation. This is equivalent to ten full-time jobs, said Tieto.
