Cognitec's products incorporate state-of-the-art technologies relevant to working with facial images, in particular deep learning, computer vision, and pattern recognition technologies. Algorithmic optimization since 1995 has resulted in superior independence from facial variances such as pose, mimic, age variance, different hair styles, glasses or temporary lighting changes.
Customers can license Cognitec's core technology, the FaceVACS Engine, through customized software development kits.
We have released both matching algorithms B13 and A19 in version 9.5 of the FaceVACS Engine, with advanced deep learning methods and a new face finder contributing to substantial performance upgrades, in particular for facial images with masks, strong poses and extreme mouth expressions.
Extensive research and development efforts to enhance the face finder technology resulted in a five times higher detection rate for faces largely covered by facial masks.
The A19 version, with a smaller memory footprint, serves Linux-on-Arm and Android platforms. For this algorithm, test results showed particularly high matching accuracy for images of people wearing face masks.
Cognitec is already preparing the release of the B14 matching algorithm, expecting a further accuracy boost for general matching tasks, and especially for comparing images with partially occluded faces.
The algorithm team has also upgraded the age estimator and under-age detectors (18 or 21) for improved accuracy, using a new neural network that works on these three tasks simultaneously.
