Face Recognition Technologies

Toshiba's face recognition technology helps watch over our most touching moments

Toshiba Face recognition Software

Face recognition technology is used in a wide variety of applications, including the identification of individuals in video surveillance systems used at public facilities, checking identities at airports and financial institutions, as well as marketing activities to identify personal attributes such as age, gender, or expression.
Toshiba has more than 20 years of experience and a proven track record in face recognition technology, achieving outstanding face recognition performance, high processing speeds, and we have also received excellent feedback in third party evaluations.
In May 2014, NIST*1 reported the results of FRVT 2013 Class C*2 on its website, and in the Executive Summary*3 Toshiba was chosen as one of the leading commercial suppliers. In another vender test of NIST named "FIVE"*4 which is for evaluation of face in video, Toshiba also received high evaluation.

Excellent recognition performance in actual situations

Toshiba's technology has excellent recognition performance in real-life situations, such as video verification. It is well suited to large-scale video surveillance, and can be used in security applications in crowded places including airports, stadiums, shopping malls, and parking lots.

Expanding possibilities thanks to diverse attribute detection functions image

Expanding possibilities thanks to diverse attribute detection functions

The high-speed, high-accuracy identification function allows secure and rapid personal identification during immigration, during ID issuance background checks (prevention of duplication and fraud), in banking applications, at amusement facilities, and more.
The product is also outfitted with various attribute detection functions, including age and gender, face direction, face coverage level, and smiling level. It can be used for marketing applications such as digital signage and customer analysis.
