These have traditionally been handled at the level of commercial banks and third-party money transfer companies. However, this system of global remittances and payments has been riddled with specific challenges. It is these challenges that have led to the conceptualization of a cryptocurrency known as Ripple (XRP).

Faceter ICO Review – An Overview
Faceter is a system which makes video surveillance smart, by giving eyes to cameras — computer vision, facial recognition, object detection and video content analysis, in real time.

They are therefore backward-looking and dumb in that they cannot, and are completely unable to react to a situation when it is actually happening in real time.

These features allow cameras to understand the situation and respond to it, offering much better security to all the customers.
