But it looks like that era might be coming to an end soon as a UMM lecturer has developed a facial recognition software that can track a student’s attendance.

Dr. Noradila Nordin, a lecturer from Universiti Utara Malaysia’s (UUM) School of Computing (SOC) created the software which detects, records and tracks a student’s attendance everytime they walk into class, rendering attendance sheet papers no longer necessary.

Currently the software is in it’s prototype stages but Dr. Noradila is certain that it can be developed to it’s full potential with the help of her students.
