For example, Apple’s iPhone X  which operates on the facial recognition technology incidents 30,000 infrared dots onto a user’s face in order to create a sequence of reflections which produce information about the 3D shape of the face, substantiating the user by pattern matching. The chance of mistaken identity is one in a million, according to Apple.
