On People Identification
SAFR’s algorithm is seventh out of 167 algorithms evaluated in terms of most uniform performance across gender and skin tone. In short, if you’ve got to have the highest performance, we can say with certainty that SAFR is the best in the world at facial recognition for live video.
Every week, we read articles with dire warnings about the dangers of facial recognition. Sometimes, they report on abuse, like authoritarian governments using the technology to quash dissent. More frequently, these articles highlight the potential for abuse.
Live video captures wild images: faces in motion (prone to blur); faces in poor lighting conditions (including shadows; faces at varying angles, tilt, and yaw); faces partially obscured (by makeup, glasses, hats, and facial hair). Adding to the complexity, there are often many of these wild images on live video feeds at once. These are some of the challenges to achieving accurate facial recognition in real-world conditions.
