Face Matching In Crowd Scenes To Be Demonstrated At Biometrics 2011

Accenture : 11 October, 2011  (Company News)
Accenture is attending Biometrics 2011 in London with a demonstration of its Biometric face recognition technology and how this can be used for identifying faces in crowds during public order incidents
Face Matching In Crowd Scenes To Be Demonstrated At Biometrics 2011
With August’s street riots in the UK still fresh in the national psyche, increased attention is now being paid to the role technology can play in helping preserve the welfare of the general public and in aiding policing efforts around crowd control, and public safety.

As part of Biometrics 2011, to be held in London (18-20 Oct), Accenture will showcase its ‘Face in the Crowd’ identity management solution to conference attendees and clients who will visit their showcase at the event. This innovative new biometric technology is capable of identifying faces from live video streams and correctly matching them against a database of thousands of facial images to make positive identifications. This technology can operate in surprising conditions, even overcoming environmental challenges such as shadows or objects such as sunglasses, which obscure facial features.

The relevance of the technology to policing and public safety is clear, but it also holds great promise across other sectors and industries, enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of all operations where identity and access are paramount. Many border management agencies including those in the UK already use facial recognition technologies.  However the latest technology developments, which allow for positive subject identification via a database of thousands of facial images, are now driving public and private sector organizations to consider how they can integrate the latest facial matching technology to better manage day-to-day operations, grant access to both physical spaces and citizen services and enhance the safety of travelers, employees and the general public.
