VisionPose’s usage in facial recognition software

By using VisionPose in our facial recognition software Bio-IDiom KAOATO, we were able to improve the accuracy of our authenticating system, as well as enhancing our anti-spoofing functions.

Initial Business Requirements

We were looking for technology that we could utilize to analyze images of people, with our stated goal being the improvement of authentication capabilities of Bio-IDiom KAOATO.  

Why We Chose VisionPose

We believed that with VisionPose it would be possible to quickly detect people in the images captured by camera and accurately trace their posture and movements, thus preventing false identification by spoofing.

We also thought that we could provide new values and services other than face recognition, by integrating our products with other functions of VisionPose.

Implementation Results and Future Outlook

Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the demand for face recognition, one of the most popular forms of non-contact authentication, has been increasing. Bio-IDiom KAOATO’s ‘Detection Enhancement Option’ works in conjunction with VisionPose to prevent misidentification and spoofing.

We are aiming to expand our services in the field of marketing purposes or surveillance of specific facilities by integrating our face recognition technology with VisionPose or other image analysis engines.

Customer Feedback

Face recognition systems compare the person in the camera to the face registered in the system and determines whether they are the same person. This technology has been improving over the years, but it requires a separate mechanism to prevent spoofing by checking whether the camera is looking at a photograph or other similar things, and companies are scrambling to find a solution. By integrating with VisionPose, we were able to solve this problem, and further improve the authentication accuracy of Bio-IDiom KAOATO, which is now on the market. There has been a widespread need to create new value by integrating our face recognition technology with an AI engine that recognizes the human body in videos. We believe that VisionPose will be a very powerful tool in this regard. I look forward to working with VisionPose in the future as well.
