Facial recognition is everywhere, from Facebook to security, gaming, stores, airports, etc. ... and its use is only growing. Facial recognition is popular because face images exist of almost everyone. There are driver's license photos, identity badges from wherever you work, library cards, warehouse club cards, social media, and the list goes on. The FBI has said that its database includes at least 4.3 million "civil images" - those taken for non-criminal purposes. With the advent of several open source facial recognition libraries, the technology will become even more commonplace than it is today.

Attend this session to learn about advances in facial recognition and what it means for your life 1 year, 5 years, and even 10 years from now. Attendees will be exposed to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Rekognition, while taking a peek under the hood at a real face detection system. You'll walk away understanding the technical aspects of facial recognition and how to integrate face detection into existing applications.
