20Face is a fast-growing ambitious startup company located in Enschede, the Netherlands. With our extensive research expertise in biometrics and facial recognition, we are bringing glimpse facial recognition technology to the international market. A technology designed and developed for unconditional facial recognition: It is extremely robust to light conditions, pose variations, image resolution and all it needs is a small part of the face.
Based on the input of just one single picture, glimpse facial recognition technology is very ‘light-weight’. Our innovative approach is based on a unique combination of regional facial recognition combined with the state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms. The technology will be available as both web-based/cloud API and local solution running on client’s machine (desktop/embedded platform).
In addition to working on the core technology, we also develop innovative custom-built facial recognition software and solutions for applications such as access-control, surveillance, smart-homes and domotica.
