Smart Engines has introduced technology that allows facial verification without biometrics

Scientists from Smart Engines have presented a new artificial intelligence-based technology that can be used to authenticate users. This technology is particularly relevant due to the recent European Union AI regulation law.

On March 13, the European Union approved the Artificial Intelligence Act, a world-first comprehensive regulation for AI systems. This law contains provisions prohibiting the use of facial recognition systems and other “remote biometric identification” systems in real-time in public places, as well as restrictions on the use of biometric identification systems by law enforcement agencies.

Smart Engines, a company specializing in developing solutions for document recognition, has presented its alternative to biometric verification. The AI algorithms developed by SE scientists do not employ biometric features when matching faces. The neural network is trained to do end-to-end comparison of faces and give an estimate of how much the face images match each other. This process is very similar to “traditional” face matching “by eye” – the only difference is that it is done by a machine, not a human.

A photo taken with a regular webcam and a photo of the face from the ID card provided by citizens are suitable for face matching. The Smart Engines technology automatically finds the photo in the document during the data recognition process. The document itself can also be photographed with a webcam or scanned. In addition, the face matching software developed by Smart Engines is fully autonomous, and can be deployed to service points which don’t even have internet connection.

Therefore, by applying Smart Engines technologies, private companies do not need to worry about compliance with regulatory requirements, and law enforcement officials will be able to ensure greater security through the use of artificial intelligence technologies.
