On-device passive facial biometric liveness check capability launched by Innovatrics
Innovatrics has unveiled a passive biometric liveness detection capability that runs facial liveness checks entirely on the user’s device as part of its Digital Onboarding Toolkit (DOT). No server verification of physical movement on the part of the user is required.
The feature can be implemented on consumer devices by companies for trusted user identification, remote customer onboarding, and fast selfie logins. Innovatrics says its advanced AI engine optimization enables the liveness detection to be performed locally, with the same accuracy and speed as server-based solutions. The library the function uses can be only a few megabytes, and requires 1GB of RAM to run smoothly, meaning it can run even on low-end devices for trusted liveness checks.
On a Pixel 4 smartphone, Innovatrics’ solution completes on-device verification in under 300ms, and on older phones it takes less than a second, according to the announcement.
Innovatrics cites a survey from instantor which shows that 60 percent of customer onboarding attempts are abandoned, frequently because of problems with server connectivity or delays in liveness checks.
“Our passive liveness check is the only one of the few to run completely on device,” says Michal Magnusek, DOT product manager at Innovatrics. “This means no server verification is required. If internet connectivity is a concern, or if the user does not want to wait too long for verification, this passive liveness check is a fast and accurate solution to onboarding. It’s strengthened our overall digital onboarding toolkit and is already drawing interest from some of our biggest clients.”
The new passive liveness feature is offered as part of a larger suite of applications for biometric checks in banking, finance, telecoms, and other industries.
Innovatrics also partnered recently with Daltrey to develop a cloud-based passive biometric liveness service.
