CyberLink facial biometrics power AI personalization in NEC PCs for consumer market
The FaceMe AI facial recognition engine from CyberLink is being integrated with NEC LAVIE Home all-in-one PCs to power new features for NEC Personal Computer’s “LAVIE AI Assistant” software.
The new features enabled by biometrics include recognizing each family member’s face to launch a personalized interface for enhanced user experiences in multi-user scenarios, the company announcement says. Users can register their faces and set up shortcuts to launch “Hey LAVIE” applications on sign-in.
“Facial recognition is one of the fastest growing technologies, and FaceMe is one of the world’s leading solutions. Just like in many other IoT and AIoT applications, facial recognition holds limitless potential to enhance the overall user experience on consumer devices,” comments Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “CyberLink and NEC Personal Computer have been partners for years, providing the company with a number of multimedia software products. By integrating FaceMe, users owning NEC’s LAVIE Home All-in-one PCs can now access an enhanced, convenient and secure experience due to the innovation unlocked through our facial recognition expertise.”
FaceMe uses an edge-based architecture for powerful, efficient, flexible and highly secure facial recognition solutions, according to CyberLink. It supports more than 10 operating systems, can run on low-power CPUs to implement facial biometrics in IoT and AIoT devices, as well as high-end servers and devices running GPUs.
The LAVIE Home All-in-one is now available in Japan.
FaceMe’s algorithm is ranked on the NIST FRVT overall accuracy leaderboard.
