Over the past 20 years, ArcSoft has been a pioneer within the field of facial-related technologies. Through our extensive investment of manpower and persistent drive to expand and unearth new facial technology, we have developed a complete set of facial technology which we have packaged into various solutions. We have constructed millions of data points for various facial types, stored on our big-data cloud servers which has allowed our computers to extensively and continuously learn about human faces, thus boosting detection and recognition rates while decreasing error rates which leads to high stability. While expanding on the basics of facial computation technologies, ArcSoft has also developed race, age, gender and even facial expression recognition capabilities. In addition, foundational technologies have been developed to include various recognition and tracking algorithms, which can be completely customized for a multitude of applications, including:
Facial Detection: Can determine whether or not a face is present and perform spot metering or focus while taking a photo, or assist smart monitoring devices to separate human faces from other moving objects for smart alerts.
Facial Recognition: Can detect faces and determine whether or not a user has been registered or has authorization. Recognition technology can also assist the police or security systems to perform realtime monitoring and possibly smart alarms on suspicious persons.
Facial Tracking: Detects a face and uses its unique features to track it in realtime.
Facial Key Point Detection: Accurately and reliably recognizes and tracks faces, while also performing virtual beautification.
Information Recognition: Recognizes information such as race, age, gender, facial expressions etc.
ArcSoft has always actively concentrated on improving success rates, while ensuring low false-detection rates. We have developed solutions for even the most adverse situations, such as large or different angles, dim, backlit environments, facial movement or various expressions, changes in appearance due to aging, partial obstruction, device movement, etc. Even under these various conditions, our technology can accurately pick up and track facial outlines and features, solidifying our status as an industry leader.
ArcSoft has also not only leveraged its various hardware knowledge to assist manufacturers in writing multithreaded programs or provide solutions for GPUs, but our algorithm team has also optimized all the way into the instruction levels of code, thoroughly optimizing even low to mid-range hardware platforms. Our algorithms are built for high efficiency, low power consumption and high accuracy.
Since the outset of widespread smartphone use, ArcSoft has been working in the field of facial technology and creating a portfolio of facial technology and related products, which have attracted a corresponding number of high-profile clients, allowing our company to become an industry leader. As an increasing number of smart hardware products enter the market, ArcSoft continues to heavily invest in its facial technology, resulting in a complete, mature product line that can be customized or moved to fit multiple application uses across various industries.
ArcSoft facial-related technologies have reached widespread use in smartphones, DSCs, tablets, IP cameras, robots, smart home appliances and other smart devices, with over 1 billion devices currently using this technology. ArcSoft facial technology have reached even more extensive use in professional service fields such as public safety, surveillance industries and medical services.
