The San Jose-based tech company Vintra, which delivers “AI-powered video analytics,” has developed facial recognition software that identifies who a person’s friends and acquaintances may be through “correlation analysis” and “co-appearance” technology that scans surveillance footage.

According to Tech Xplore, Vintra’s CEO, Brent Boekestein, said in a presentation of the software last year, “You can go up here and create a target, based off of this guy, and then see who this guy’s hanging out with. You can really start building out a network.”

“96 percent of the time, there’s no event that security’s interested in but there’s always information that the system is generating,” Boekestein added.
