AnyVision facial recognition to provide ticketless entry at London stadium this summer


Facial recognition technology from AnyVision will be deployed at a London stadium for ticketless event entry this summer, the Evening Standard reports.

Co-founder and CEO Eylon Etshtein told an audience at the Ifsec International Security Show that people are increasingly comfortable trading privacy for convenience.

“People want seamless access to a stadium and for everything to be super-simple,” he said. “They want to enter without stopping, without waiting to scan a barcode or for the card reader to work.”

AnyVision’s technology can perform a match from 3 meters away in 0.3 seconds, according to Etshtein, with a false acceptance rate of one in a million. “Using your face means no one can fake it,” he said. He also said that AnyVision can provide software to recognize guns, bodies, and bags, and can provide automatic alerts for unattended baggage. The company also claims its technology is as accurate as the human brain, utilizing a full facial scan, rather than only metrics such as the distance between facial features.

Meanwhile, German electronics company Bosch has announced the purchase of a nine percent stake in AnyVision, and the companies have entered into a sales and technology partnership.

Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport reportedly used AnyVision’s facial recognition technology for a trial completed earlier this year.
