According to Connie Chan, runners of the Shanghai marathon can use a facial recognition product to easily buy photos of themselves running the marathon, automatically sourced from every photo of the race.
Face recognition commercialization:
1. Upload a selfie to wechat official account.
2. Run Shanghai half-marathon.
3. Within hours get back photos of yourself (from 000's of pics by freelance photographers).
4. Pay $1 to buy unwatermarked images.
