Twenty-five wanted criminals hoping to quaff a few brews at the Qingdao International Beer Festival were recognized by the local police bureau's facial recognition system and detained.

During the event, which ran from Aug 4 to 27, the system captured and analyzed 2.3 million facial images. About 190 of them were flagged to police, who confirmed that 25 were wanted criminals.

In addition, with the help of the technology, police turned away 19 drug addicts, caught five would-be pickpockets (suspects with past police records whose photos were on file) and ejected 32 others.
