The future of facial recognition and other facial technologies could be about you, according to the head of an Australian facial imaging company.
The CEO of CyberEye, Mark Kwan, spoke at the Future of Technology conference at the University of Sydney on Friday, where he outlined the benefits of facial technology and the need to invest in a new generation of technology.
“We are a pioneer in facial recognition technology,” Mr Kwan said.
We’ve been at the forefront of technology for a long time, but it hasn’t really made us any money.””
So you could pick up your smartphone and use it to recognize that you’re wearing a jacket.”
“We’ve been at the forefront of technology for a long time, but it hasn’t really made us any money.”
The reality is, we need to make a dent in the market.
“In the meantime, we have a huge opportunity.”
It’s about the future of technology, but also about the ability of people to be in control of their own lives.
“Innovative technology and facial recognition are in high demand for various medical, beauty and safety purposes.
The technology is currently used in medical examinations, such as to detect disease, to detect facial abnormalities such as a beard or a tattoo.
In the future, facial technology could be used in a range of applications including facial recognition for the medical assessment of patients with cancer and other conditions, facial reconstruction to make the appearance of a face more realistic, to identify victims of violent crime, and for identification purposes.
Mr Kwan pointed to the use of facial images to identify and locate a missing person as an example of a new use of technology to improve public safety.”
What’s important is that people can have confidence in their ability to take action and to have control of what they see and do.””
It’s the technology that we are going to have the ability to use to identify people that we don’t want to have to look in a police station.”
“What’s important is that people can have confidence in their ability to take action and to have control of what they see and do.”
