Upgraded Neurotechnology Face Verification Solution Supports Web Apps
Neurotechnology has announced a much improved version of its facial verification solution featuring improved algorithms and web application support.
Face Verification 12, which includes simplified APIs to help customer organizations implement biometric facial recognition, offers a number of new or enhanced features, with a web service component among the most notable. The web service essentially brings biometric operations that previously had to be performed on a mobile device or PC to remote servers. This means that a customer can apply Neurotechnology’s facial recognition to a remote broadcast camera in real time, with biometric operations performed via WebRTC and REST API.
Another important new feature of Face Verification 12 is its new encrypted biometric template format, which allows template sizes so compact that biometric data can be stored on microcontrollers or included in a QR code.
Commenting on the upgrade in a statement, Neurotechnology Business Development Manager Antonello Mincone explained that the company has seen growing demand for facial recognition in consumer applications, but “requirements vary widely, depending on the ‘location where data is stored, where biometrics checks are performed and the different privacy and security rules involved’ in each case.
“Face Verification 12 meets this demand with a new web service component and smart card compatibility that extends architectural face authentication capabilities,” he explained. “It enables system integrators to easily implement and deploy different registration and authentication workflows for mobile, web, and hybrid applications.”
Face Verification 12 also offers an enhanced passive liveness detection mode, which is capable of looking for liveliness and signs of presentation attacks without any special action from the end user. According to Neurotech, the new liveliness solution includes an improved algorithm to detect an end user’s eye blinks.
The alertness detection algorithm is therefore even more accurate than before, and this is also true of the solution’s facial recognition algorithm. Additionally, a new SDK component allows users to export biometric data and perform verification on smart cards that incorporate the updated version of Neurotechnology’s MegaMatcher On Card SDK, also announced this week.
