I have two questions regarding the following context:
"Thankfully, scientists are now much closer to understanding how facial recognition works, with significance for possible future remedies. In the meanwhile, their work is enjoying immediate application in law enforcement."
First: “with” means “which has”. And “which” refers to a whole sentence, so: “The fact that scientists are now much closer to understanding how facial recognition works has significance for possible future remedies.”
Second: I don’t know the meaning of the whole bold part. However, I can guess the meanings of the individual words: Enjoy: Have something as a feature or benefit Application: practical use or the ability to be used for practical purposes Work: their discoveries
Maybe the whole means: "the law enforcement is considering the practical use of their discovery because their achievements have many benefits." :) (I know it is totally wrong)
