Facial recognition is a way of recognizing a human face through technology. A facial recognition system uses biometrics to map facial features from a photograph or video. It compares the information with a database of known faces to find a match.
How does facial recognition work? Technologies vary, but here are the basic steps:
Step 1: Face detection
The camera detects and locates the image of a face, either alone or in a crowd. The image may show the person looking straight ahead or in profile.
Step 3: Converting the image to data
The face capture process transforms analog information (a face) into a set of digital information (data) based on the person's facial features. A person’s face analysis is essentially turned into a mathematical formula. The numerical code is called a faceprint. In the same way that thumbprints are unique, each person has their own faceprint.
Step 2: Face analysis
Next, an image of the face is captured and analyzed. Most facial recognition technology relies on 2D rather than 3D images because it can more conveniently match a 2D image with public photos or those in a database. The software reads the geometry of a person’s face. Key factors include the distance between a person’s eyes, the depth of a person’s eye sockets, the distance from forehead to chin, the shape of a person’s cheekbones, and the contour of a person’s lips, ears, and chin. The aim is to identify the facial landmarks that are key to distinguishing a person’s face.
Step 4: Finding a match
The faceprint is then compared against a database of other known faces. If the faceprint matches an image in a facial recognition database, then a determination is made.
