Why it’s important

Facial Recognition technology generally involves determining the identity of an individual person by capturing a number of intrinsic facial characteristics and comparing them with the images of a group of people already classified. The traditional matching process relies on computer algorithms which are notoriously inaccurate – they are often deliberately configured to generate false positive results that a human then needs to check, verify and eliminate.

To improve the effectiveness of this artificial vision and matching task, TOC has developed an advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine that focuses on comparing just two sets of facial data – usually a self-taken photograph and the image on an official identity card. We have created a convolutional neural network (CNN) in which neurons correspond to receptive fields – this is very similar to the way neurons in the primary visual cortex of a biological human brain work.
