IntelliVision beefs up its face recognition tech with liveness detection
IntelliVision announced today the addition of anti-spoofing to its face recognition technology, ensuring that photos, screen-based images or even videos of a known face will not be recognized.
“With the growing popularity of facial recognition for access control, security and personalization, it is inevitable that bad actors will try to fool the system,” explained Krishna Khadloya, vp development for IntelliVision. “Special 3D cameras are too expensive for most applications, so we have implemented a ‘liveness’ test which can be used with regular 2D cameras, embedded or server-based.”
According to the announcement, the liveness testing system can be configured for fast secure recognition, or highly secure recognition at a slightly slower speed.
IntelliVision face recognition can be implemented on premise servers, over the cloud, or embedded in cameras with multi-core ARM chips such as those from Ambarella and Qualcomm. IntelliVision face recognition will also soon be commercially available on Nortek Security & Control’s ELAN intelligent touch panels.
IntelliVision was acquired in May 2018 by Nortek Security & Control, a provider of home automation and commercial and residential wireless security systems. Face Recognizer scored 93 percent accuracy on the Megaface million-scale challenge last year.
