The next installment in IBG's monthly webcast series will focus on 3D face recognition

International Biometric Group (IBG) is hosting a free webcast on 3D face recognition this Thursday, August 27th at 1:00 pm EST.

While the large majority of face recognition techniques and implementations are based on 2D image processing, 3D face recognition technology is becoming an increasingly important component of the face recognition industry. Recent advances in hardware and software for capturing data to build 3D face models can minimize common sources of degraded performance in 2D recognition systems. As 3D technology matures, systems and solutions that fuse 2D and 3D techniques will emerge that take advantage of the unique capabilities of each. Further research and testing are required to determine the current effectiveness of 3D face recognition techniques and the optimal blend of 2D and 3D for enhanced speed and performance.

In this 30-minute webcast, IBG Consultant Mary Collins will:

  • Describe current 3D facial image capture and modeling technologies
  • Compare 3D face recognition vendor products and approaches
  • Analyze the advantages and disadvantages of deploying 3D facial recognition systems
  • Outline recommendations and considerations for future research efforts
  • Provide case studies of 3D facial recognition system implementation

Event Title: The Development of 3D Face Recognition
Event Date: August 27, 2009 at 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
