Intel leverages its RealSense technology to create a secure method of facial recognition. Intel today announced its Intel RealSense ID technology, the result of the combination of an active depth sensor supported by a specialized neural network designed to provide a secure, accurate, and user-aware facial recognition system.

This technology will not only provide a new security barrier when accessing a computer but will also be incorporated into many other markets, such as intelligent locks, ATMs, etc. to simplify user authentication by improving security.
”Intel RealSense ID works with smart locks, access controls, point-of-sale, ATMs, kiosks, and more. Intel RealSense ID combines specially designed hardware and software with a dedicated neural network, designed to provide a secure face verification platform that users can trust”, said Sagi Ben Moshe, corporate vice president of Intel and general manager of Emerging Growth and Incubation.
Because traditional authentication methods leave users vulnerable to identity theft and security breaches, businesses and individuals are turning to facial authentication technology to ensure the highest levels of security and privacy.
In industries such as finance, healthcare, and intelligent access control, businesses need technology they can trust. Intel RealSense ID has built-in anti-spoofing technology to protect against false entry attempts using photos, videos, or masks, and provides a false acceptance rate of one per million.
Based on privacy and designed for user protection, Intel RealSense ID processes all facial images locally and encrypts all user data. The solution is also activated only through user knowledge and will not be authenticated unless requested by a previously registered user. As with all Intel technology, we are working to ensure the ethical application of RealSense and the protection of human rights.
