CyberLink (5203.TW), a leading manufacturer of AI facial recognition technologies, has strengthened its presence in the smart IoT market. The company has announced that its FaceMe® facial recognition engine has been integrated with MediaTek’s Genio 700 next-gen smart IoT platform, dramatically increasing AI performance.
While it continues to integrate with numerous other IoT platforms, CyberLink FaceMe® has significantly improved performance on MediaTek’s latest Genio 700 processors. Running on a Genio 700, the FaceMe® engine is accelerated by MediaTek’s AI Processing Unit (APU). Performance tests show that, in comparison to running exclusively via CPU processing, the APU hardware / software integration increases performance by 6.5X, with a 24% reduction in CPU usage.
The new MediaTek processor provides faster, more efficient and reliable AI facial recognition processing, meeting the complex, high-speed edge computing needs of smart retail and smart security and access control operations. “The strong alliance between CyberLink and MediaTek, with its Genio IoT products, will provide FaceMe® users with faster, more convenient, and powerful facial recognition edge computing products,” said Jau Huang, Chairman and CEO of CyberLink, “enhancing the security and dependability of deployed facial recognition services.”
MediaTek’s Genio 700 is a high-performance AI computing IoT platform. This system-on-chip (SoC) provides powerful CPU, GPU and AI modules, designed for smart home, smart retail and industrial IoT devices. By integrating the latest AI cores and accelerators, the Genio 700 greatly enhances the smart computing power of edge devices, and significantly increases the number of image frames that can be processed per second. MediaTek’s platform can also support real-time AI facial recognition from multiple simultaneous video streams, improving the identification efficiency for implementation scenarios such as smart retail, and access control.
CyberLink FaceMe® not only recognizes faces but can also identify gender, age, and emotions. These features enable the turnkey FaceMe® Smart Retail customer analytics solution to obtain insight into guest demographics, behaviours, and trends. FaceMe® Security strengthens on-site security, with a more complete intelligent security control system.
