Taipei, Taiwan — December 12, 2019—CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a pioneer of AI and facial recognition technologies, participated in 2020 Advantech Embedded-IoT World Partner Conference at Advantech’s Linkou Smart Campus. Dr. Jau Huang, CyberLink’s founder and CEO was invited to speak about the results of its successful and strategic partnership with Advantech in the conference’s segment entitled: “TechTalks: The Evolution of Edge Computing and AI.” The partnership is enabling considerable enhancements to FaceMe®’s performance when running on Advantech’s AIR Inference System combined with Intel Movidius VPU. It provides a significant proof point on both companies’ leadership in the global AIoT industry.
Powered by deep learning algorithms, FaceMe® delivers reliable, high-precision, and real-time facial recognition that is critical to AIoT applications such as smart retail, security, public safety, banking and smart home. Based on machine learning and deep neural network, FaceMe® has an accuracy rate (TAR, True Acceptance Rate) of 99.5% at 10-4 FAR. It ranks amongst the most precise and fastest facial recognition engines in the NIST’s Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT). Built for Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS, FaceMe® is one of the most flexible and comprehensive cross-platform development solutions.
At the conference, Advantech demonstrated its AIR Inference System powered by Intel Movidius VPU, showcasing a 20X improvement in FaceMe®’s performance compared to a similar system equipped with a conventional CPU – all while maintaining the engine’s outstanding facial recognition precision. In addition to driving down the costs of bandwidth and computation over AI solutions running on the cloud, Edge-based FaceMe® furthers its already considerable performance advantage when using this new Advantech system.
“Leading hardware developers and system integrators around the world strive to innovate and develop new AI solutions. We welcome collaboration initiatives that integrate FaceMe®’s AI facial recognition engine and bring reliable, secure and highly performing offerings to the market,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CyberLink’s founder and CEO. “CyberLink and Advantech’s partnership is strengthening both companies’ global AIoT leadership.”
Advantech is a global leader in the fields of IoT intelligent systems and embedded platforms. With FaceMe®, CyberLink is providing hardware developers and system integrators one of the world’s most precise, fastest and most flexible AI facial recognition engines, driving a wide and rapidly growing range of AIoT applications and scenarios.
