On a global scale, face recognition has become the forefront of technological innovation and has a wide range of technological applications. According to data from Mordor Intelligence, the global facial recognition market is valued at US$4.4 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach US$10.9 billion by 2025, with a compound annual growth rate of 17.6% during the 2020-2025 forecast period.
Facial recognition technology has been widely used in the past few years and has been applied in various fields. Its use in industry has led to the maturity of the technology, which has become a boon in the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Due to technological advancements, infrastructure growth and cross-industry industrialization, the Asia-Pacific region is the most favorable region for facial recognition. The fear of contacting public surfaces caused by the Covid -19 outbreak is stimulating a shift in the market. It is only a matter of time before facial recognition will become a standard specification for all companies in India. What is facial recognition? It is a tool to recognize people based on facial expressions, and it is based on AI and ML technology. It analyzes human faces to verify individuals.
It has various advantages, such as finding missing persons, identifying criminals, ensuring safety in public places, and maintaining law and order. Face recognition is also used in airports, financial institutions and medical centers to accurately determine a person's identity. This has another advantage because it can also provide power for thermal scans to check body temperature, thereby minimizing the spread of infection. Although facial recognition has many advantages, these advantages do not always verify the accuracy of hard data and software.
How does it work?
Face recognition is used with a binary program, it can recognize facial features, and then the software converts them into data, which can be accessed and stored for future reference. Throughout the Asia-Pacific region, facial recognition has proven to be a key tool to help companies improve their services and products. This helps companies simplify complex processes, enhance customer experience, and enable contactless payments. While India is increasing its work on face recognition (it is important to understand its mechanism), it mainly focuses on the following three aspects:
Level 1: Detect faces through algorithms, which recognize faces through typical factors, such as facial structure, eyes, distant eyes, nose, mouth, etc. The tool can recognize multiple facial attributes and create numbers.
Level 2: Then cross-reference the digital personal data with the face database, and it identifies a string of numbers that uniquely identify the individual.
Level 3: Then, the software scans the video frames that are usually captured in crowded places. It recognizes faces frame by frame, and then gives a digital outline for each face. Then check the digital file against the people on the watch list. Then display the same matches with the correct rate.
What is the threat?
Facial recognition technology is the most qualitative. However, the result depends on the appropriate environment, such as the availability of high-quality images, otherwise, the software will be inaccurate, making it difficult to match the correct faces in the database. Many people are worried about the privacy issues brought about by facial recognition. The technology has the potential to track individuals. In addition, there are multiple cases of data theft and personal details that do not always protect software files. Artificial intelligence and facial recognition technology are on the rise. If used carefully and with correct guidelines and intentions, it will have a powerful advantage that can be used to increase efficiency and build social harmony.
