CyberLink’s CEO Dr. Jau Huang Shared Insights about the Future of AI Facial Recognition in an On-Stage Speech at 2019 COMPUTEX Forum

Taipei, TaiwanJune 5, 2019 COMPUTEX 2019 brought a glimpse into the future of technology, showcasing the latest innovations from global tech leaders. Dr. Jau Huang, founder and CEO of CyberLink (, a provider of cutting-edge AI and facial recognition technologies, was invited by the COMPUTEX Forum, to give an on-stage speech in its AIoT session. Dr. Huang shared insights on the future of edge-based AI facial recognition, and he demonstrated case studies showing how CyberLink’s FaceMe® AI Facial Recognition Engine helps AIoT developers transform applications such as smart retail, smart security and more.


AI Facial recognition and edge computing are currently two of the hottest technology trends. Most IoT applications need real-time response to facial recognition, requiring edge-based solutions that offer better processing performance with minimal latency and much higher efficiency than facial recognition processed on the cloud. CyberLink’s FaceMe®, the leading edge-based AI facial recognition engine and one of the world’s top solutions, yields up to 98.5% true acceptance rate (TAR), offers highly flexible capabilities and runs cross-platform on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, and more operating systems. It offers hardware and system providers one of the best environments to quickly integrate facial recognition technology into their existing and new solutions.

“As they are quickly evolving and maturing, game-changing facial recognition and edge computing technologies are now among the most significant AI trends. When deployed on edge devices and without operating system limitations, facial recognition’s processing speed can be greatly enhanced, resolving latency problems caused by cloud computing,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “CyberLink’s FaceMe® has ranked among the top-tier facial recognition engines in a number of global competitions, including the National Institute of Standards and Technology Face Recognition Vendor Test (NIST FRVT 1:1) and the MegaFace Challenge, establishing our solution as one of the most accurate and fasted engines in the world.”

In his speech, Dr. Jau Huang shared a number of FaceMe® success stories across AIoT applications. For smart retail, FaceMe® can help retailers collect customer statistics such as visit counts, age, gender, and satisfaction, and recognize VIP guests as well as blacklisted visitors. In another scenario, FaceMe® can be integrated into service robots that welcome and identify customers upon arrival and provide them with helpful directions, like a virtual concierge. FaceMe®’s anti-spoofing capabilities matched with 2D/3D cameras can significantly enhance protection against fraudulent access, enabling reliable and advanced smart security and banking. For broad deployments such as law enforcement systems, FaceMe® supports hybrid architectures where facial data can be quickly captured from edge devices and then sent to a main server for further facial landmark analysis.

Less than a year after launching FaceMe®, CyberLink has collaborated with more than 100 global partners, including hardware makers, solution providers and system integrators, deploying the technology across multiple IoT/AIoT scenarios. FaceMe® was recently honored with COMPUTEX d&i awards for its innovative and powerful capabilities.
