Facial Recognition

AI Training Data For Facial Recognition

Optimize your facial recognition models for accuracy with the best quality image data

Facial recognition

Today, we are at the dawn of the next-generation mechanism, where our faces are our passcodes. Through the recognition of unique facial features, machines can detect if the person trying to access a device is authorized, match CCTV footage with actual images to track felons and defaulters, reduce crime in retail stores, and more. In simple words, this is the technology that scans an individual’s face to authorize access or execute a set of actions it is designed to perform. At the backend, tons of algorithms and modules work at breakneck speeds to execute calculations and match facial features (as shapes and polygons) to accomplish crucial tasks.

The anatomy of an accurate facial recognition model

Facial features and perspective​

Facial features and perspective​

A person’s face looks different from each angle, profile, and perspective. A machine should be able to accurately tell if it is the same person regardless of whether the individual stares at the device regardless from a front-neutral perspective or right-below perspective.

Multitude of facial expressions​​

Multitude of facial expressions​​

A model must precisely tell if a person is smiling, frowning, crying, or staring by looking at them or their images. It should be able to understand that eyes could look the same when a person is either surprised or scared and then detect the precise expression error-free.

Annotate unique facial identifiers​

Annotate unique facial identifiers​

Visible differentiators like moles, scars, fire burns, and more are differentiators that are unique for individuals & should be considered by AI modules to train and process faces better. Models should be able to detect them and attribute them as facial features and not just skip them.​

Facial Recognition Services from Shaip

Whether you need face image data collection (consisting of different facial features, perspectives, expressions or emotions), or face image data annotation services (for tagging visible differentiator, facial expressions with appropriate metadata i.e. smiling, frowning, etc.,) our contributors from across the globe can meet your training data needs fast and at scale.

Face image collection

Face Image Collection

For your AI system to accurately deliver results, it has to be trained with thousands of human facial datasets. The more the volume of image data, the better. That’s why our network can help you source millions of datasets, so your facial recognition system is trained with the most appropriate, relevant, and contextual data. We also understand that your geography, market segment, and demographics could be very specific. To cater to all your needs, we provide face image data across diverse ethnicities, age groups, races, and more. We deploy stringent guidelines on how face images should be uploaded to our system in terms of resolutions, file formats, illumination, poses, and more. This gives us a uniform range of datasets that is not only easy to compile but train as well.

Face image annotation

Face Image Annotation

When you acquire quality face images, you’ve completed only 50% of the task. Your facial recognition systems would still give you pointless results (or no results at all) when you feed acquired image datasets into them. To initiate the training process, you need to get your face image annotated. There are several facial recognition data points that have to be marked, gestures that have to be labelled, emotions and expressions that have to be annotated and more. At Shaip, we do all this with precision through our facial landmark recognition techniques. All intricate details and aspects of facial recognition are annotated for accuracy by our own in-house veterans, who have been into the AI spectrum for years.

Submit data files in agreed format​

Our team of experts can collect and annotate facial images on our proprietary image annotation platform, however, the same annotators after a brief training can also annotate facial images on your in-house image annotation platform. Within a short span, they will be able to annotate thousands of facial images based on stringent specifications and with the desired quality.TE

Facial Recognition Use Cases

Regardless of your idea or market segment, you would need abundant volumes of data that need to be annotated for trainability. So, our solutions will perfectly meet your needs and help speed up your time to market. To get a quick idea of some of the use cases you could reach out to us, here’s a list.

  • To implement facial recognition systems in portable devices, IoT ecosystems, and make way for advanced security and encryption.
  • For geographical surveillance and security purposes to monitor high-profile neighborhoods, sensitive regions of diplomats, and more.
  • To incorporate keyless access to your automobiles or your connected cars.
  • To run targeted ad campaigns for your products or services.

Let’s discuss your Training Data needs for Facial Recognition Models

Facial recognition is one of the integral components of intelligent biometric security, aimed at confirming or authenticating a person’s identity. As a technology, it is used to ascertain, identify, and categorize humans in videos, photos, and even real-time feeds.

Facial recognition works by matching the captured faces of individuals against a relevant database. The process starts with detection, is followed by a 2D and 3D analysis, image-to-data conversion, and finally matchmaking.

Facial recognition, as an inventive visual identifying technology is often the primal basis for unlocking smartphones and computers. However, its presence in law enforcement i.e. helping officials collect mug shots of the suspects and matching them against databases also qualifies as an example.

If you are looking at more targeted examples, Amazon’s Rekognition and Google’s Photos are some of the prime samples.

If you are planning to train a vertical-specific AI model with computer vision, you must first make it capable of identifying images and faces of individuals and then initiate supervised learning by feeding in newer techniques like semantics, segmentation, and polygon annotation. Facial recognition is therefore the stepping stone for training security-specific AI models, where individual identification is prioritized over object detection.

Facial recognition can be the backbone of several intelligent systems in the post-pandemic era. The benefits include improved retail experience using Face Pay tech, better banking experience, reduced retail crime rates, faster identification of missing persons, improved patient care, accurate attendance tracking, and more.
