Advancements in Facial Recognition Applications


Facial recognition is becoming very prominent in many different verticals with an array of applications. The system has been applied to fight crime, prevent problem gamblers at casinos, greet hotel guests, and now to unlock your iPhone. With this application quickly advancing, the components within this tool could realize a strain on supply due to increasing demand.

The new iPhone X will feature face recognition technology used to unlock the phone, thanks to an advanced suite of tech packed into the front of the phone. It involves an infrared camera, flood illuminator, front camera, dot projector, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor. The dot projector beams out more than 30,000 invisible infrared dots, and the infrared camera captures an image. Apple uses the infrared image and dot pattern and pushes them through neural networks to create a mathematical model of your face. Then, it checks that mathematical model against a stored image captured earlier. The iPhone X will come with an A11 bionic neural engine to process faces.
