How does Facial Recognition Work?

Imagga Facial Recognition API helps companies unlock precise and robust face detection and recognition functionality in still images and live stream videos in their applications and systems. The API can be easily implemented in web, desktop and mobile applications used for identification and authentication of users; face detection in a collection of images for the organization of personal photos; age, gender and ethnicity recognition; celebrity recognition.

Imagga Facial Recognition API is based on machine learning AI technology which uses object localization for face detection and then compares the features of the face detected with those of images in a pre-defined or custom dynamic database.

Therefore “facial recognition” meaning finding all facial images in a collection of images, that look like the reference image(s) of the same person with high level of confidence.

Imagga deeply respects users’ privacy and doesn’t reveal the identity of the people on the images we process. No facial images are stored - only their numerical features representations are stored and used for recognition. Using Imagga's Face Recognition technology is 100% GDPR compliant.
