Rank One releases major update to ROC SDK
Rank One Computing has released version 1.18 of the ROC SDK, its flagship facial recognition solution. The company notes this release, now available to Rank One’s user community, delivers substantial accuracy improvements and several new features and is one of the most significant progressions ever to Rank One’s face recognition algorithms.
According to the announcement, the main highlight of this release is up to a 2x reduction in error rates across all types of facial imagery, constrained and unconstrained, and that this improvement is particularly profound across the more challenging demographics.
A new feature added with this version update is emotion classification. The company’s SDK users will be able to quickly assess whether a face appears happy, sad, angry, fearful, disgusted, surprised, or has a neutral expression.
“Version v1.18 represents yet another major progression delivered to our customers and partners,” commented Rank One’s CEO Brendan Klare. “Through a lot of hard work and innovation, our pace of our accuracy improvements is accelerating with no end in sight. Additionally, we are further re-investing in long term initiatives to ensure the ROC SDK remains an industry leader in accuracy, efficiency, and ease-of-use. Best of all for ROC customers under maintenance plans, our advanced licensing policies ensure that they can automatically take advantage of all these v1.18 enhancements.”
A more detailed description of the improvements in this release can be found in the company blog.
Last month Rank One released an accelerated version of its standard ROC SDK algorithm called ROC Embedded for mobile devices and video processing applications.
