What is facial recognition?

Facial recognition technology is a kind of biometric recognition technology based on facial features. It uses a camera to collect images or video containing human faces and automatically detects and tracks human faces. Facial recognition technology is divided into three parts: face detection, face tracking, and face comparison. We can detect the face of a living body in a complex background and scene through facial recognition and perform dynamic target tracking on the detected face in real-time. And compare the sampled facial image with the inventory face image sequentially and find the best match.

What are use cases for face recognition?

There are many use cases for facial recognition technology, such as the security management of enterprises and residences, identification and management of electronic passports and ID cards through biometric recognition, the government sectors use facial recognition to trace criminals, the bank ATM and computer login, etc. In general, face recognition is mostly used as identity verification for users which is usually divided into 1:1 face recognition and 1:n face recognition, etc. For example, 1:1 face recognition is mainly used to determine whether the person in the two photos is the same person. The model will give a score with the rule that the higher the score, the greater the possibility of being the same person. In reality, a threshold value M will set. If the score value is greater than the M, then the result is positive. In the same way, 1:n face recognition means that one face performs n-time 1:1 face recognition in the photo library, and finally matches the photo with the highest score in the face library.
