NEC faces off competition

NEC claims to have developed the world's most accurate 3D face recognition algorithm.

NEC claims to have developed the world's most accurate personal identification system with a novel 3D face recognition algorithm.

The algorithm uses geodesic illumination basis (GIB) descriptors as registered data, which is calculated from 3D facial data, enabling optimal description of various pose and illumination changes. The vendor claims this results in the superior identification accuracy needed to apply facial recognition technology to the real world.

Conventional 2D facial image recognition technologies typically compare registered 2D facial image data with live 2D facial image data. This can lead to unstable matching results due to the deviation in environmental conditions (such as light and posture) when the images are captured.

This has been a significant barrier to accurately identifying people using facial characteristics. NEC claims the 3D facial recognition algorithm it has developed has solved these problems and also succeeded in achieving greater accuracy under severe environmental conditions.
