NEC Corporation of America has entered into an agreement with Ideal Innovations (I3), a leader in biometric and forensic professional services, to promote the responsible use of face recognition systems and enhance the skills of professionals in the field.
The I3 Face Center of Excellence (FaCE) will offer NEC customers a comprehensive suite of training services tailored to the facial identification discipline for forensic examiners. With a wealth of expertise, I3 is dedicated to equipping individuals and organizations with the knowledge and tools they need to use NEC’s top ranked NeoFace face recognition technology effectively and ethically.
Independent testing confirms that NeoFace technology provides most accurate matching capability and is the most resistant to variants in ageing, pose angle.
“We are offering our NeoFace customers the opportunity to enhance their skills and knowledge in the responsible use of face recognition technology through our collaboration with the I3 facial identification training,” said John Dowden, NEC Senior Product Manager. “This agreement empowers our customers to harness the full potential of facial recognition technology to investigate and solve criminal cases while upholding ethical standards. We believe this collaboration will be a game-changer in the industry, enabling our customers to leverage our technology to its fullest extent while ensuring responsible use.”
The key strength of NeoFace technology lies in its tolerance of poor quality. Highly compressed videos and images, previously considered of little to no value, are now usable evidence and leading to higher rates of positive identification. With its proven ability to match low resolution facial images, including images with resolutions down to just 24 pixels between the eyes, NeoFace technology outperforms all other face recognition systems in matching accuracy. While searching of latent fingerprints at crime scenes is standard, NeoFace facial recognition technology can now positively identify latent photos with high degree of accuracy.
NeoFace biometric face recognition technology is used worldwide for fighting crime, preventing fraud and improving public safety.
NEC recognizes the value of collaborating with I3 to provide comprehensive training and education to its customers. This agreement aligns with its AI and Human Rights principles.
“Our purposeful partnership with NEC provides a combination of world-class technology with proven facial identification training,” said Dr. Rebecca Perlman, Senior Vice President of Forensics at I3.
