Intel has introduced RealSense ID Facial Authentication in an effort to deliver private, secure facial recognition.
Traditional authentication methods leave much to be desired, especially with rise of ransomware attacks, software supply chain attacks, identity theft and additional threats. Intel’s hope is that RealSense ID will provide a more secure alternative, paving the way to use facial recognition to unlock access controls, smart locks, ATMs, kiosks, POS systems and more.
Intel touts the ease with which RealSense can be deployed and used.
With an easy enrollment process and no network setup needed, Intel RealSense ID brings a highly accurate, natural solution that simplifies secure entry. Using only a glance, users are able to quickly unlock what’s important to them. Intel RealSense ID combines active depth with a specialized neural network, a dedicated system-on-chip and embedded secure element to encrypt and process user data quickly and safely.
Facial recognition has become one of the most controversial technologies in existence. It appears Intel is trying to bring some credibility and security to the technology, emphasizing the potential good it can offer.
