Industry Insights

Facial recognition refers to a security system which identifies a person from video frame or digital image. It is a computer application designed for access control that is based upon facial features of a person. One of the most significant advantages of facial recognition technology is that it does not require any cooperation from the subject. Thus, the technology can be easily used for identifying people even in crowded places.

Another major factor fueling the Industry growth is the increasing investment on security systems. Public places such as airports, railway stations and commercial/retail places are vulnerable to terror attacks. Due to rising terror threats, surveillances systems are mandatorily installed at these places. Facial recognition systems are used in combination to the video frames produced by the surveillance systems making suspect identification easier.

Nevertheless, the most significant factor hindering the Industry growth is the privacy concerns over public use of facial recognition solutions. In several European and North American countries, require prior permission for using facial recognition in commercial purposes. Additionally, the facial

recognition algorithms are accurate up to 97% making their slightly unreliable.
