AI facial recognition and edge computing are currently two of the
hottest technology trends. Most IoT applications need real-time response
to facial recognition, requiring edge-based solutions that offer better
processing performance with minimal latency and much higher efficiency
than facial recognition processed on the cloud. CyberLink’s FaceMe®, the
leading edge-based AI facial recognition engine and one of the world’s
top solutions, yields up to 98.5% true acceptance rate (TAR), offers
highly flexible capabilities and runs cross-platform on Windows, Linux,
Android, iOS, and more operating systems. It offers hardware and system
providers one of the best environments to quickly integrate facial
recognition technology into their existing and new solutions.
“As they are quickly evolving and maturing, game-changing facial
recognition and edge computing technologies are now among the most
significant AI trends. When deployed on edge devices and without
operating system limitations, facial recognition’s processing speed can
be greatly enhanced, resolving latency problems caused by cloud
computing,” said Dr. Huang. “CyberLink’s FaceMe® has ranked among the
top-tier facial recognition engines in a number of global competitions,
including the National Institute of Standards and Technology Face
Recognition Vendor Test (NIST FRVT 1:1) and the MegaFace Challenge,
establishing our solution as one of the most accurate and fasted engines
in the world.”
In his speech, Dr. Huang shared a number of FaceMe® success stories
across AIoT applications. For smart retail, FaceMe® can help retailers
collect customer statistics such as visit counts, age, gender, and
satisfaction, and recognize VIP guests as well as blacklisted visitors.
In another scenario, FaceMe® can be integrated into service robots that
welcome and identify customers upon arrival and provide them with
helpful directions, like a virtual concierge. FaceMe®’s anti-spoofing
capabilities matched with 2D/3D cameras can significantly enhance
protection against fraudulent access, enabling reliable and advanced
smart security and banking. For broad deployments such as law
enforcement systems, FaceMe® supports hybrid architectures where facial
data can be quickly captured from edge devices and then sent to a main
server for further facial landmark analysis.
Less than a year after launching FaceMe®, CyberLink has collaborated
with more than 100 global partners, including hardware makers, solution
providers and system integrators, deploying the technology across
multiple IoT/AIoT scenarios. FaceMe® was recently honored with COMPUTEX
d&i awards for its innovative and powerful capabilities.
