    Detailed documentation and samples perfected during two decades of in-house research and development make it easy to get started.

How face recognition works

How face recognition works

Facial recognition is based on face descriptors. The system calculates the similarity between the input face descriptor and all face descriptors previously stored in a gallery. The goal is to find the face(s) from the gallery that are most similar to the input face.

  • No images are stored or processed
  • Face recognition based on face descriptors
  • Similarity between faces is returned as a value between 0 (no similarity) and 1 (maximum similarity)

Built with privacy in mind

No personal information such as photos or names is stored or processed. All biometric templates are exclusively mathemathical representations of users’ faces, strictly separating biometric and personal information. They cannot be exported or reverse-engineered to their original format.

This way of handling data ensures the highest level of privacy, even when dealing with extremely sensitive data.

Flexible and easy to integrate

Face recognition is extremely lightweight, which allows it to run smoothly on a wide range of devices, even without an Internet connection.

  • Works online and offline
  • Delivers accurate results in real time
  • Flexible enough to be used for any use case
