  • A Close Look at China’s Face Recognition Technology
  • Dec 13, 2017


Face Recognition is one of the important biometrics techniques, along with fingerprint, Retina scan, and Iris scan, etc. It has been a perennial popular research challenge in personal identification and human machine interaction since its inception in 1960s, and in recent years there has been a marked escalation in accuracy thanks to the development of convolutional neural networks (CNN) and deep learning schemes in Artificial Intelligence (A.I.).

This report takes a close look at China’s face recognition technology, as its massive algorithms currently top the global rivals in Labeled Faces in the Wild (LFW) - an internationally well-known test for examining face recognition accuracy.
