The FBI is considering video recognition technology that would help quickly identify suspects, even when a portion of the suspect is captured on camera, NextGov.com reports.

“Think of it as automated police lineups for the YouTube generation,” NextGov.com wrote.

The idea is to match up footage with a technology called, “motion picture pattern-matching.” It would look for known people and locations.

“The FBI is currently undertaking a major issue study of video and digital image processing and video/digital image analytic capabilities to identify current capabilities, assess gaps, and develop a roadmap for the FBI’s future video analytics architecture,” a contracting notice read, according to NextGov.com.
