What is Facial Recognition?

Facial recognition uses the face as a way of identifying or confirming an individual’s identity and can be used to identify people in photos, videos, or even in real-time. Examples of how facial recognition systems can help authorities include such things as quickly finding missing children at amusement parks by scanning faces with cameras or taking drivers’ pictures when vehicles approach toll booths or security gates.

Facial recognition systems can be used to improve the efficiency of security services by providing a chance for operators to instantly recognize or ignore unrecognized people, as well as create maps of their movements. Facial recognition software is an efficient way to help automate and augment any video management system with many benefits such as improving accuracy in logging images for a later investigation into suspicious activity.
