Slovakia-based biometric firm Innovatrics has announced the launch of IFace 3.0, the next generation of the company's facial biometric technology. Features include enhanced real-time ICAO check, identification and authentication (1:1 matching), multi-face tracking, and people analytics, including age and gender profiling. Another feature of the technology is newly introduced GPU acceleration support, meaning IFace 3.0 is now capable of performing thousands of facial template extractions per second..Commenting on the launch, Innovatrics founder and CTO Jan Lunter said: “IFace 3.0 represents a significant milestone for Innovatrics. Early evaluations put us alongside the top vendors in terms of matching speed and accuracy. This aligns with our vision of having an exceptional facial biometric technology to complement our fingerprint technology, which has been an industry leader for over a decade. We are now in a unique position to deliver powerful multimodal identity management solutions for projects of all sizes.”Innovatrics also said it has managed to significantly reduce the size of the SDK (software development kit) on Android and iOS platforms, which is critical for mobile users.IFace has already been integrated into a number of AFIS (Automatic Fingerprint Identification System) deployments including border control and civil identification projects.
