Facial recognition is a way to use technology for the personal identification or grouping of individuals in images, both still and video.
Face recognition is a type of computer vision that uses optical input to analyse an image—in this case, it looks particularly at faces that appear in the image. Facial recognition technology can be used as a building block to support other capabilities like face identification, grouping, and verification.
Face recognition software can support many practical uses, both for businesses and for users at home.
Face recognition is a form of artificial intelligence (AI) that mimics a human capability to recognise human faces. Just like when a human recognises a face, facial recognition software captures facial features and creates a pattern of facial features which it uses to identify or group a face.
