This is my talk from the Scenic City Tech Conference
Facial recognition is everywhere from Facebook to security, gaming, stores, airports, etc. and its use is only growing. Facial recognition is popular because face images exist of almost everyone. You've got driver's license photos, identity badges from wherever you work, library cards, warehouse club cards, social media, and the list goes on. The FBI has said that by 2016, its database will include at least 4.3 million "civil images" — those taken for non-criminal purposes. With the advent of several facial recognition APIs and the innovation leader, Amazon, throwing its hat in the ring with Amazon Rekognize, the technology will become even more common place than it is today. Attend this talk to learn about advances in facial recognition and what it means for your life 1 year, 5 year, and even 10 years from now. After the talk, take a peek behind the scenes at an application that uses facial recognition.
