Facial recognition technologies are among the most trusted and efficient access control tools available to smart cities.
Computer vision is when AI has eyes and automates human sight. It has countless applications in many fields, including construction, security, agriculture, and many more.
Facial recognition technology is making many areas of life more convenient. People can now verify their identity without so much as a password or fingerprint. These technologies allow masses to access buildings without a key or breeze through airport security. But like any other privacy technology, fraudsters are targeting facial recognition via spoofing.
Modern facial recognition applications go far beyond accessing an iPhone or smart home. Today, facial recognition is proliferating into areas like air travel, retail, hotels and banking. That's because facial recognition can make customers' lives easier and businesses more efficient.
We've come a long way from ringing the doorbell or even needing keys to enter our homes, offices and buildings. Technology has given us smartphone apps, finger scanners and key cards. And now, facial recognition is making access even more convenient and secure.
