U.S. mall owners and retailers are ramping up their use of facial recognition to ascertain shoppers' traffic patterns, employee performance, and consumer response to displays and marketing.

Said Sandy Sigal, CEO of shopping center owner NewMark Merrill, "We definitely at the minimum want features that accurately identify who your customers are, where in the shopping centers they go, and how long they spend there."

Data/intelligence provider Springboard Research sells tracking technology that plugs into security cameras, to anonymously monitor individuals and vehicles in malls.

Meanwhile, Remark Holdings' products allow clients to use facial-recognition data to track down customers and enroll them in loyalty programs.
