NEW YORK -- Taiwanese surveillance company CyberLink plans to bring its facial recognition technology to U.S. stores in a bet that it can succeed in a market where Chinese rivals are struggling to gain a foothold.

CyberLink says its FaceMe software program -- which tracks shoppers' faces and analyzes their emotions -- can help brick-and-mortar stores offer shoppers more personalized service without compromising privacy.
