Sightcorp launches Face Mask Detection software in response to C19 regulations

In recent months, countries have been taking steps to return to normal daily proceedings and as a precaution to ensure the containment of the pandemic, the continued wearing of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) has become a requirement. The requirement to wear a face mask differs from country to country, with some countries like Italy even issuing fines to those who do not abide by mask-wearing guidelines. Masks are now globally a requirement at airports, on public transport and anywhere within a confined public space where a 1,5-meter distance cannot be held. Sightcorp has launched a new product feature; real-time face Lire la suite

What is Biometric Access Control?

The main objective of the Biometric access control systems is to restrict physical access to a given area based on input access control settings. The settings can vary depending on the organization and its needs, the company may decide who is able to pass through security staff, specific employees, preselected guests, or nearly everyone.  Biometric access control systems are highly flexible and customizable based on the clients’ needs. Nowadays, many private organizations started incorporating biometric access control systems into their facilities, corporate buildings and offices. Moreover, many governmental institutions are also following an example of the private sector and have Lire la suite

The body of the request is a JSON format string representing the input parameters. The HTTP Lire la suite

Announcing Liveness Detection for FaceMatch

Sightcorp Liveness Detection Spoof attacks, meaning impersonation attacks where a representation of a genuine user’s face (e.g. video, photo) is used by another person to gain access to a secure (digital) space is one of the most common and worrisome challenges for Facial Recognition systems. At Sightcorp we are dedicated to building software that is not only accurate and stable but also safe. Therefore, we have developed and incorporated a ‘liveness check’ into our software so that you as an app operator can be certain that the person you are verifying is alive and not just a capture of Lire la suite

Influence of Misalignment on NMS

Face detection is a fundamental problem that has been around since the early ’70s. Faces hold a lot of information, e.g. age, identity, emotion. To be able to extract this information from photos or videos it is important to first accurately localize faces. For most straightforward cases with many constraints, e.g. a face on an id card, this is already very accurate. However, for the harder/unconstrained cases, like occlusions, more problems occur.Subsequently, it is very common for detectors to return multiple bounding box suggestions that refer to the same object/face. Though, in order to not have all these overlapping boxes Lire la suite

Technical Specifications

The table below shows how FaceMatch SDK performs on the Labelled Faces in the Wild (LFW) dataset:

FPRTPRThreshold (Inverse of distance)
0.10.99900 ±0.002130.55448
0.010.99667 ±0.005370.59791
0.0010.99367 ±0.006050.62989

FPR = False Positive Rate
TPR = True Positive Rate

These results are an indication only and are based on the specific dataset Labelled Faces in the Wild. Customers can expect similar performance, with possible variations due to hardware and the availability of annotated data.
