SK Taman Perling 1 in Johor Bahru has created history by becoming the first school in Malaysia to use facial recognition scanners to mark students’ attendance

According to New Straits Times, the system, which was introduced this year, takes only two seconds to scan a pupil’s face before their personal information such as full name, pupil number, and class is stored into the school’s database.
