Improved Facial Recognition and Rotated Facial Modeling


Executive Summary


This software exhibits many improvements to current facial recognition technology. When compared to current state-of-the-art technology against standard databases, this invention showed a 15% improvement. Additionally this invention includes novel features such as the possibility of multiple image and still frame inputs, as well as facial reconstruction available from profile-to-frontal view with 1 degree increments of rotation.


Description of Technology


Surveillance technology has consistently experienced exponential improvement from one generation of technology to the next, and as such the industry is part of a relatively large market that continues to experience significant growth. This invention outperforms current state-of-the-art technology by combining the two most common facial recognition techniques (frontal rotation and discriminative feature identification) in an effort to create better predictive facial modeling and facial recognition.
