Cyberlink face biometrics integrated with Altek 3D imaging chip for smart security systems
Digital imaging application maker Altek Corp is integrating Cyberlink’s AI facial biometric engine FaceMe with its 3D depth-sensing solutions to provide accurate detection and anti-spoofing capabilities to smart security systems.
Altek’s AL6100 3D depth sensing chip integrated with FaceMe and 3D cameras can deliver reliable, accurate facial recognition and prevent fraudulent images or videos from being incorrectly accepted, according to the announcement.
“Anti-spoofing is vital for smart security and other AIoT applications. CyberLink’s FaceMe engine is capable of accurate anti-spoofing by utilizing an array of inputs including 2D & 3D cameras, human head motions, voice, structured light scanners, time-of-flight (ToF) cameras, and other mainstream 3D imaging technologies. This allows FaceMe to achieve highly accurate human face pairing with faultless anti-spoofing results,” says CyberLink CEO Dr. Jau Huang. “Through our collaboration with Altek Corp., we hope to implement FaceMe’s high-accuracy facial recognition technology into 3D camera solutions to deliver safer and more reliable facial recognition capabilities to hardware manufacturers of mobile phones, door access control systems, and a number of other applications.”
FaceMe is powered by deep neural network (DNN) algorithms, and has a true acceptance rate (TAR) of 98.41 percent with a false acceptance rate (FAR) of less than 10-6 (0.000001), as confirmed by the MegaFace Challenge. It provides cross-platform capabilities, supports Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS, and can be integrated into edge devices for customized applications.
“This integration helps achieve excellent facial detection functions under any illumination, and also builds up an AI access and security system powered by edge computing, smart visual identification, and more innovative software and hardware services,” comments Atek Corp. CEO Alex Hsia. “All together, it provides top level security control for retailers, manufacturers, factories, and homes.”
Cyberlink recently demonstrated FaceMe in smart devices for several different applications at CES.
