CyberLink Corp will demonstrate its artificial intelligence facial recognition technology FaceMe at the Digital Signage Expo (DSE) 2019. In the MegaFace Challenge, FaceMe had an accuracy rate of 98.5% and a false acceptance rate of less than 0.000001, making it superior to the iPhone’s facial recognition. FaceMe’s data can be used for home security systems, retail, cities, and more.
FaceMe’s purpose will differ based on which industry it is used in. In Smart Retail, FaceMe can detect customers’ demographics and emotions, giving companies more data about their customers.
“At CyberLink, we understand the importance of customer engagement and the benefits that integrating advanced technology can bring to the customer experience,”
said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “That’s why we spent over five years developing FaceMe, one of the top ranked facial recognition solutions in the world, to help companies track not only customer identification, but also their satisfaction, behaviors and more”, Dr. Huang continued. Under Smart Security, FaceMe can help with door access and under Smart City, FaceMe can connect security cameras with their Video Management System, tracking people through a closed-circuit television network.
CyberLink will not keep any customer or citizens’ personal data. While the analysis is done in the FaceMe device, only the persons’ vector points, the locations of their eyes, nose, and mouth, will be sent up to the cloud. The live footage doesn’t livestream on the cloud; instead, it remains in the device locally. FaceMe can be added to existing security systems and is currently available in Asia. It works with Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS devices.
Internet giants like Amazon have also invested in facial recognition technology. In May of 2018, Amazon filed a patent that would allow users to flag suspicious persons, uploading the images of the person from other sources. Even if the person isn’t found in the criminal database, the user can still receive updates and add him or her to the neighborhood database. Amazon and CyberLink build on previous artificial intelligence efforts in the home security industry.
