Facewatch Introduce Algorithm for Face Masks

Facewatch is now delivering a next-generation periocular recognition algorithm that detects and recognises faces, even when face masks are being worn. The Facewatch Periocular algorithm leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to perform person detection and identification using solely the eye and eyebrow regions of the face. The Facewatch algorithm can operate with any camera, delivering consistent efficiency and accuracy.

Facewatch is including the periocular algorithm to all existing license holders under active maintenance, and the algorithm will be a standard feature, included for no additional cost. Facewatch will soon release a mask detection algorithm, which leverages the periocular face recognition pipeline to enable rapid awareness of whether a person is wearing a mask or not.
