"98% false positive is not a pre-filter, it's nearly everything"

No. 98% of the "matches" it gives are false positives. For every person in the crowd it tries to identify it throws up about 50 possibles for a human to look at and confirm. 49 of those won't be the person they are trying to identify and 1 of them potentially is.
