Facial recognition involves the use of facial image scanning to authenticate identities. There are many technologies that come together to make facial recognition work and help achieve a slew of goals. In the current era, facial recognition has found application in some aspects such as smartphone security, intelligent shopping, air travel, law enforcement, and more. However, this tech is yet to become mainstream in our daily lives.
As of now, it is used to unlock a smartphone, but it is likely to become a major tech in the coming years. There is an increase in the adoption of this tech with other aspects such as deep learning algorithms that help identify an individuals identity. And, a slew of startups have already started selling facial recognition as their core tech. These companies use algorithms to identify people accurately.
