Japanese Digital Key Platform Company Bitkey Inc. Adopts CyberLink FaceMe® To Enable Contactless Face Authentication

Bitkey, founded in 2018, is a Japanese startup that provides various smart lock, smart access and security solutions for homes and buildings. The new Bitkey platform was designed to enable contactless facial recognition to identify individuals and enable secure entry for homes, offices as well as admission tickets at concert venues. At this stage, the technology was first deployed in an apartment building in the Koto District, Tokyo city. Residents can use their faces as keys to safely enter the house, eliminating the inconvenience of using security cards or traditional keys.

“Access, security and safety will always be a priority for smart buildings and facial recognition is one of the best technologies for identification and authentication,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “With the Bitkey platform now powered by FaceMe®, residents will not only have a more convenient and seamless way to enter and exit their building, but they will have confidence in the security of their home.”

“Bitkey platform” is powered by the CyberLink FaceMe® AI facial recognition engine. FaceMe® supports a wide range of IoT/AIoT technologies and platforms, such as CPUs (Intel® CPUs, supporting OpenVINO™ and ARM CPU), AI vision processing units (Intel® Movidius™) and IoT platforms (Nvidia Jetson™). For IoT/AIoT applications, FaceMe® can run on light-weight, low power consumption platforms, facilitating developers’ deployment of facial recognition across different use cases.
