FastFace is a comprehensive facial recognition system capable of finding identical or similar persons. Based on advanced AI algorithms, Cydral Technology's experts in machine learning created a smart and innovative search engine to enhance the user experience for people identifying.
Given a detected face extracted from a picture taken by a camera or loaded from a library and a set of public candidate faces to search with, the FastFace search engine finds a small set of faces that look most similar to the target face. Additionally, and for each uploaded image, FastFace returns attributes such as the estimated age and the gender.
FastFace analysed a large set of images from Vkontakte (VK), Instagram, Twitter, GitHub, also coming from the Internet and extracted contents from public profiles. As a new opportunity for identifying individuals, we also added to FastFace's database image profiles provided by Interpol on its public website.
Unlike other face recognition technologies, our FastFace system allows quick searches in big data sets. Our system can work with any photographic database, current results though it use public images found on the Internet and indexed by our specific crawlers.
Accurate and scalable facial recognition system: FastFace allows you to provide photos of similar people and related public information, mainly where the image appears on the Internet. It is not a reverse image search engine, but a comprehensive system integrating a top quality face recognition technology based on several deep learning algorithms developed by Cydral. Collecting millions of faces from Web images, our service finds out a person within few seconds, retrieving results from our database of about 500 millions analyzed web pages.
Typical Use Cases: ✓ Large-scale search by photo: you see a celebrity on the street that you can't quite recognize... FastFace him/her! ✓ "Who is this actor?": try out the name suggestion for well-known celebrities during a movie ✓ Person identification: identify a person on photo in few seconds with an impressive precision ✓ Gender and age-guessing tool: besides finding your look-alike, our system will do its best to guess the age and gender of the people in the shot, a feature also to maximize your efficiency ✓ Easy to use and funny: simply select the image you want to use in your phone gallery or take a photo to instantly start your search ✓ Advanced search engine: our flexible search engine behind the mobile application provides effective feature filtering to restrict results
Tips to improve your search experience: ✓ Some things can trip up the search process, such as bad image quality, sometimes objects that obscure the face or a face that’s mostly in profile ✓ To improve the search accuracy, it is sometimes valuable to directly upload photos rather than using the mobile phone camera ✓ On some devices, an image capture using the camera intent gets rotated. In this case, the accuracy drastically decreases .
