Executive Briefing Series: Facial Recognition

Federal efforts to improve biometric identification and authentication increasingly center on facial recognition. In dynamic situations such as port-of-entry screening, crowd surveillance, cybersecurity authentication and counter terrorism, facial recognition has already improved mission delivery.

Facial recognition technology itself has advanced quite a bit in recent years, making it more efficient, more accurate and obtainable from farther away. Fingerprints remain the gold standard for many applications. But obtaining a high-quality, 10-finger set is time-consuming and fingerprint matching live requires physical contact, unlike facial recognition.

Where fingerprint matching is already in place, going multi-modal by adding facial recognition can give a higher degree of verification, experts say.

In this exclusive executive briefing, the following experts will explore trends in facial recognition, where technology and applications are moving fast:
