Apple has a trail record of taking products that work but haven’t so far caught on, then redesigning them with a plea that makes them catch fire. Currently, there’s a latest patent that recommend Apple could next deal with facial recognition.
A patent application published by the US Patent and Trademark Office on Dec 29 and spotted by Patently Apple depicts a system for occurrence detection that builds on two patents. Apple had already filed allied to the technology, although this one has a definite take aimed at use in mobile devices.
Earlier patents dealt with presence detection on MacBooks and with advanced recognition systems for use in processor-heavy home and business applications.
It expressed a system in which lighting conditions, angles and scale could all be accounted for, making face recognition functional on mobiles without severe caveats and conditions.
Apple’s latest method would use shortcuts to precisely conclude, who is using a device without involving the heavy computational costs usually involved in such a process. It achieves this by ignoring facial biometrics and considering the position of personal features to compensate for modify in subject orientation.
The latest patent also expressed such other efficient tricks as recognizing faces among family members, friends, and co-workers, after that delivering different screen savers or non-secured information to those individuals.
