Facial Recognition

Facial recognition is making that possible as the technology gains traction in a range of consumer products, automobiles, and retail and hotel services, in addition to its longstanding but controversial use in law enforcement and security. While facial recognition has been on smartphones for some time, some newer uses include in care and entry systems for homes and offices, along with retail applications.

The Indian government plans to decongest its airports by introducing facial recognition technology next year – a proposal that may once again raise privacy concerns in the South Asian country. India’s Ministry of Civil Aviation passengers on domestic flights will be able to opt to use their biometric authentication system and go paperless. “Security will benefit from the ability of the technology to verify the passenger at every checkpoint in a non-intrusive way.  The proposal says passengers would be verified by being photographed at every stage of the check-in process – from entering the airport to proceeding through security and boarding the plane.

Facial recognition technology is now increasingly being used by retailers to analyze our shopping behavior, by marketing professionals to assess our age and gender, and by banks to authenticate transactions, in addition to unlocking our phones and tagging friends on social media. Israel companies use advanced image processing and deep learning to process the photo or video in such a way that it will look similar to the human eye.

Israeli companies excel in providing innovative technologies and enhance R&D services for business opportunities.  Companies in India can benefit from the advanced technology in Facial recognition.
