Smart mirror prototype uses Applied Recognition’s facial recognition technology

 

Applied Recognition and PS Solutions have jointly developed a prototype smart mirror that can provide personalized information to individuals using Applied Recognition’s facial recognition authentication technology combined with future machine learning.

The “Information Mirror” displays information relevant to the individual such as the weather forecast, news, etcetera based on information which has been pre-set, and can be used as a bathroom mirror. By using Applied Recognition’s facial recognition authentication technology, Ver-ID Authentication, the individual reflected in the mirror can be automatically recognized and have personalized content displayed. In combination with machine learning in the future, it will also be possible to make suggestions according to lifestyle such as clothing, food or transport routes based on the individual’s schedule.

“Applied Recognition is grateful for the opportunity to work with PS Solutions, the leader in Japanese IoT solutions, on this facial recognition prototype,” said Applied Recognition CEO Ray Ganong. “Our core principle is that Privacy is Most Important. The traditional way of authentication using an ID and password is not user friendly for IoT device services. Using Ver-ID Authentication mitigates risks such as phishing, hacking and the stealing of IDs.”

BiometricUpdate.com has previously interviewed Applied Recognition co-CEO Don Waugh in which he discussed the Ver-ID face authentication software, the recent apointment of Dr. Konstantinos N. Plataniotis as scientific advisor, and what we can expect from the biometrics firm in 2016.
