Facial Recognition is the latest addition to services that offer you the utmost privacy in your electronic devices. It is a biometric software used to confirm a person’s identity on the basis of fingerprints, retina, iris, voice, facial patterns or hand measurements. Though it was developed mainly for security purposes, it has been found to be useful in many other areas.
The entire concept was developed by an ophthalmologist Frank Burch.
Areas where facial recognition has made things simpler and easier:
- Finding missing people
- Helping the blind
- Protecting schools from threats
- Tracking school attendance
Though facial recognition technology has a plethora of benefits drawbacks are still present, such as troubles with image size and quality, or a strong influence of the camera angle.
To overcome these drawbacks, experts have come up with cloud-based facial recognition. This system has expanded security services by allowing only authorized personnel to access data from the server.
Benefits of cloud-based facial recognition:
- Increases efficiency
- Reduces cost
- Improves accessibility
Services offered by cloud-based facial recognition:
- Software as a Service(SaaS): In this model, it provides access to MS-OFFICE, Turbo C, etc.
- Platform as a Service(PaaS): It supplies you with the database, etc.
- Infrastructure as a Service(IaaS): It is the base of cloud-based facial recognition.
Human traits like fingerprints, irises, and facial features are used to identify a person in a bio metric security system.
Fingerprint technology is one of the most common ways to spot a person’s identity. The bio metric system uses the fingerprint technology to identify a person. The surface of a finger has unique patterns and each person has a unique fingerprint. The unique patterns on the finger tips help the biometric system to identify a person. These patterns are completely different and every individual possess a unique pattern. Even twins do not possess similar fingerprint patterns or iris patterns.
Talking about facial recognition,face structure and face texture are different for different human beings. Facial patterns are the only thing that can set some one apart from anyone else manually, without using any devices or technology.
In cloud-based facial recognition, the newly entered data is matched to existing data, and if an image is found, it’s shown or other similar images are displayed.
Companies like BAYINFOTECH provide you with cloud-based facial recognition technology to help level up your security and privacy needs.
