A New Zealand man of Asian descent had his passport photograph rejected when facial recognition software mistakenly registered his eyes as being closed.
Richard Lee’s attempt to renew his passport was blocked after he submitted the picture to an online passport photo checker …. The automated system told [him] the photo was invalid because his eyes were closed, even though they were clearly open ….
