Intel develops FaceID-like biometric authentication system

Intel believes that its RealSense 3D camera ultimately brings facial authentication on consumer-facing devices such as point-of-sale systems, ATMs, which have been ignored for years. RealSense ID takes advantage of two camera lenses and special sensors that can capture depth.

Intel on Thursday declared a new facial recognition system that pledges to bring FaceID-like biometric access to ATMs, smart locks, and more. The Santa Clara, California-based chipset said its RealSense ID camera system combines an active depth sensor with a specialized neural network designed to deliver secure, precise, and user-aware facial authentication. The RealSense ID system will be made available in Q1 2021.

A dedicated system-on-chip can detect and distinguish a person’s face. Intel said that the system adapts to users’ changing appearance over time. The solution also works on people with a wide range of heights or complexions.

RealSense ID has built-in anti-spoofing technology to block any attempt of false entry through the use of photographs, videos, or masks. It has a one-in-one-million false acceptance rate. Intel technology ensures the ethical application of RealSense and the protection of human rights. Intel has been encountering hard rivalry from both Apple and AMD in the chip business. The company first initiated its RealSense 3D camera technology in 2014.
