LG CNS collaborates with SenseTime on biometric entry service unaffected by masks

LG subsidiary LG CNS announced it has deployed artificial intelligence-based biometric facial recognition technology from Chinese company SenseTime on 26 points of entry at its main office in Seoul to replace ID cards.

The AI facial biometrics gate service will ensure faster access for employees who will not have to stop for identification when entering the building, nor does it involve access cards, fingerprints or iris scans.

The facial recognition devices match faces with images uploaded in the service database to verify identity in less than 0.3 seconds, LG CNS said, adding that the technology is not influenced by masks, glasses or makeup and it does not need direct contact with an access device.

The technology allegedly has an accuracy of 99 percent and can identify a person from two meters away, writes ZDNet. Each facial recognition reader can store a maximum of 50,000 facial images, and doesn’t require internet connection to be operational. The readers and the system will collect all users’ personal information.

Future plans include expanding the service to up to 27,000 access points for 170 clients, and integrating the technology with CCTV cameras.

Amid the Coronavirus outbreak, SenseTime has developed a facial recognition system that can identify individuals wearing face masks.
