LogicaCMG displayed its latest facial recognition technology and launched a new white paper, covering multi-modal biometrics and fusion searching, at a summit entitled ‘Expanding the fusion concept'.

"Identifying an individual using biometrics has been possible for some time and there are already some very sophisticated applications and solutions," said Tim Best, director of Global Identity Solutions, at LogicaCMG.

"However, new innovations are making it possible to record a selection of biometric and biographic data to support much more extensive electronic identification schemes."

The company claims the advanced technology is able to pick any face from a crowd of 1,000s and will offer an insight into the next generation of airport, border control and other security systems.

The face-recognition application compares the camera-captured image of an individual's face with reference photographs stored in a database to identify the individual.

This form of biometrics makes it possible to recognise individuals by their unique personal characteristics with recent tests revealing an 85% success rate.

Biometric technology offers the most secure method of ensuring all details in these projects are accurate and correct with government authorities across the Middle East investing in identity schemes to register overall population levels.

In addition, biometric technology could offer an important tool for the region's airports to help manage the increasing volume of passengers arriving in the Middle East.

"LogicaCMG is in discussion with a number of significant organisations across the region about deploying our advanced solutions in identity verification programmes, border control solutions and other physical access control technology.

"Given the rapid and ongoing development of projects in the Middle East, we're anticipating strong demand in coming months," Best concluded.
