Facial Recognition System

A facial recognition system is a computer application for automatically identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source. One of the ways to do this is by comparing selected facial features from the image and a facial database.

It is typically used in security systems and can be compared to other biometrics such as fingerprint or eye iris recognition systems.

Famous quotes containing the words system, facial and/or recognition:

    Nothing is so well calculated to produce a death-like torpor in the country as an extended system of taxation and a great national debt.
    William Cobbett (1762–1835)

    You must call up every strength you own
    And you can rip off the whole facial mask.
    William Dewitt Snodgrass (b. 1926)

    By now, legions of tireless essayists and op-ed columnists have dressed feminists down for making such a fuss about entering the professions and earning equal pay that everyone’s attention has been distracted from the important contributions of mothers working at home. This judgment presumes, of course, that prior to the resurgence of feminism in the ‘70s, housewives and mothers enjoyed wide recognition and honor. This was not exactly the case.
    Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)
