What is it all about?
Face Forensics (f2) is a highly advanced face recognition system that is designed to work with the embedded or linked face images in your existing database, be it SQL Server, Oracle, DB2 or MS Access. Once f2 is pointed at the images it will analyze the characteristics of each one. These are used to generate a unique digital encoding describing each face. These encodings are stored in a separate database, or matching gallery
Matching galleries can be shared amongst f2 users, so multiple users can connect to a single gallery. Users can connect to any computer running an f2 gallery of interest. Because searches are comparing encodings describing faces rather than the images themselves, the searches are extremely fast, typically greater than 1m records/second. f2 can optimize itself for the specific type of image it's being used to recognize. f2 is unaffected by race, age, or colour. The language of the user interface can be changed at will. During screening, f2 can analyze a variety of images from still photos and video sources. Detection and recognition results can be sent to designated recipients. This can be accomplished either interactively by the user, or in a fully automated mode, as below.
