Good Finance Chooses CyberLink’s FaceMe® Facial Recognition Technology to Perform Identity Verification for Its Online Banking Services


CyberLink’s FaceMe Fintech solution combines the latest ID authentication, facial recognition and liveness detection technologies, ensuring intuitive, accurate and secure identity validation to Good Finance’s online banking customers.

Taipei, Taiwan – July 19, 2022 – CyberLink Corp., a pioneer of AI and facial recognition technologies, has partnered with Good Finance to integrate its AI facial recognition engine, FaceMe into Good Finance’s eKYC (Electronic Know Your Customer) account opening process. By using their mobile device camera, customers can validate their identity and remotely sign all necessary documents. The FaceMe solution is convenient for new customers who don’t need to visit their local branch, and eliminates the potential for human errors inherent to manual identity verification.

A streamlined experience – integrating identity verification into online banking app

Good Finance implemented CyberLink’s FaceMe AI facial recognition engine into its mobile app and portal to eliminate the need for new online banking customers to visit a physical branch when performing certain operations such as opening an account. Customers can complete the verification process remotely by simply uploading a picture of their ID to the Good Finance app and following the live face capture prompts within the app. Identity is instantly verified, accuracy is guaranteed and no time is lost.

 

Secure multi-factor authentication with FaceMe’s ID verification and liveness detection

As important as verifying the photo ID’s authenticity, FaceMe’s AI technology accurately validates that the person in front of the camera is the one on the ID. To prevent identity fraud, FaceMe supports liveness detection and anti-spoofing. It can detect whether a real person is in front of the camera (not a photo or video) and check that it is not an impostor wearing a prosthetic mask.

 

“CyberLink provides legally compliant, top-ranked facial recognition to the eKYC process, and meets all needs and requirements of the financial industry in Taiwan,” said Daniel Chen, Product Manager of Good Finance. “After careful consideration, we chose to partner with CyberLink, to offer our customers an enhanced online experience, while improving internal operating efficiency. After only a few months since debuting the integration of FaceMe in our eKYC service, Good Finance has helped nearly 300 online customers successfully open new accounts. We appreciate the partnership with CyberLink and their support and effort.”

 

“Accurate and secure identity validation of online customers, also known as eKYC, is a top priority across the banking, insurance and security industries, as well as any organization engaged in fintech. AI facial recognition is the perfect technology to address this important matter,” said Dr. Jau Huang, Chairman and CEO of CyberLink. “We are honored that Good Finance chose FaceMe to perform online identity validation. FaceMe’s industry leading accuracy, anti-spoofing and overall performance uniquely meet eKYC’s demanding requirements and play a key role in taking fintech to a new level of excellence.”

 

FaceMe is the most versatile facial recognition offering on the market today. With a 99.7% accuracy rate and secure built-in liveness and anti-spoofing capabilities, FaceMe can run on edge devices (mobile phones, tablets) as well as banks’ internal servers. The solution’s availability and optimized performance across platforms and environments help developers create new fintech applications and quickly test and deploy them in the market.

Toyota Motor Corporation Adopts ITOCHU Techno-Solutions’ “Vehicle Inspection Information System,” Integrated with CyberLink’s FaceMe Facial Recognition, for Vehicle Quality Control

TAIPEI, TAIWAN – June 16, 2022 – CyberLink Corp., a pioneer of AI and facial recognition technologies, has collaborated with ITOCHU Techno-Solutions to integrate with its AI facial recognition engine, FaceMe. As a FaceMe partner, ITOCHU Techno-Solutions used FaceMe to develop a new version of its “Vehicle Inspection Information System” for adoption by Toyota Motor Corporation to improve vehicle quality management.

About the Vehicle Inspection Information System

The Vehicle Inspection Information System is a quality management system for reviewing the inspection results of finished vehicles. FaceMe provides high-speed and precise facial recognition to ensure that only certified inspectors can inspect finished vehicles. Its touchless facial authentication and high accuracy also improve work productivity. Moreover, its ability to perform facial authentication without inspectors needing to remove their hats and masks helps prevent infectious diseases.

The factory has already deployed multiple Android devices for face authentication. Using CyberLink’s FaceMe, qualified inspectors can authenticate their faces while still wearing hats, goggles, and masks to immediately perform a face match.

Why should I adopt FaceMe?

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, users should authenticate their faces while wearing masks. Adopting FaceMe is an excellent choice due to its ability to perform facial recognition while users wear masks and because of its outstanding market recognition.

“Due to recent COVID-19 infections, our workers must wear masks all the time,” said Mr. Imato, Assistant Manager of Toyota Motor Corporation. “We’ve adopted FaceMe because of its outstanding performance, specifically in face matching when performing facial recognition on mask-wearers. It allows us to improve productivity and concentrate on the inspection work itself. Moreover, CyberLink has also supported us in eliminating environmental problems usually encountered with facial recognition, such as bright factory lighting and dimly lit car interiors.”

“We are honored that ITOCHU Techno-Solutions has integrated our FaceMe facial recognition SDK in its Vehicle Inspection Information System, and Toyota Motor Corporation, whose top quality represents Japanese manufacturing worldwide, has chosen this system,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink Corp. “FaceMe brings world-class accuracy and anti-spoofing technology to ITOCHU’s system, making Toyota Motor Corporation’s quality control processes more convenient and productive. It has also helped prevent infectious diseases while creating a market for smart factories.”

“Using deep neural network AI technology, FaceMe is an attractive product due to its quick speed and high accuracy in facial recognition,” said Mr. Matsunaga, Division Manager of ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Co., Ltd. “Our customers have spoken highly of FaceMe, so we are delighted to be able to integrate it with our systems. CyberLink’s support during the verification process was also helpful. We plan to extend our services to other factories in the future, so we appreciate their continued support.”

Providing consulting, design, development/construction, and operational/maintenance support services, CTC combines advanced IT solutions and cloud services to solve customer problems. CTC provides the best services in telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, finance, distribution/retail, fields of public interest, life sciences, and science and engineering.

TAIPEI, TAIWAN — April 15, 2022 — CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a pioneer of AI and facial recognition technologies, today announced an important update to its facial recognition security software, FaceMe® Security. FaceMe Security now integrates with AXIS Communications’ AXIS Camera Station VMS (video management software), creating a robust, unified platform that brings facial recognition to AXIS’s security and access control applications. With this solution, users can now layer person-of-interest detection, group tagging and management, and visitor summaries on top of existing IP surveillance configurations with AXIS cameras and VMS.

AXIS is a global market leader in intelligent security solutions, integrating network cameras, video recorders, workstations, and video management systems. AXIS Camera Station is an easy-to-use, efficient VMS platform offering video surveillance and access control applications. Its intuitive interface and extensive compatibility make it an excellent fit for FaceMe® Security, a value-added smart surveillance software solution powered by CyberLink’s highly-ranked and precise FaceMe® AI facial recognition engine.

The unified platform, combining FaceMe’s real-time facial recognition to the AXIS Camera Station interface, delivers a unique, efficient and powerful monitoring solution. One operator can visualize up to 36 camera feeds on one screen. They can then rely on the facial recognition console running on a second display to receive real-time alerts. These alerts are triggered when individuals associated to a managed group (e.g., VIP, blocklists, employees) appear in front of a connected camera located in an area or at a time potentially requiring a certain action to be taken.

“Smart video management software is becoming an essential component to security and access control systems,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “Adding the facial recognition capabilities of FaceMe to the AXIS Camera Station enables a powerful, highly automated security monitoring environment, running on one intuitive platform.”
