Cognitec is looking back at 20 years developing high-ranking face recognition technologies, and working with partners around the world on major government and commercial projects.
Amid pandemic struggles in 2020, the company released an advanced face-finding algorithm, and upgraded its matching software to reach highly accurate results for images of people wearing facial masks.
Last year, the company says it introduced a hardware device to automatically capture biometric facial images for entry/exit systems at borders, and later won the contract to install the technology at all German airports. Upcoming versions of the well-received product will include presentation attack detection and facial matching capabilities.
“Amongst the significant recent changes, globally and for Cognitec, we continue to focus on developing leading technology that carries out complex face recognition processes with high accuracy. We also remain a strong advocate for the responsible use of biometric technologies, so they benefit a safer society while offering a trust-based user experience,” says Cognitec CEO Alfredo Herrera. “The company is still growing and evolving in response to quickly changing face recognition applications and regulations.”
Cognitec is currently hiring at all three locations to meet the increasing demands for face recognition technologies in both government and private sectors.
