In less than 0.1 seconds, Viettel Solutions’ facial recognition technology can recognize a person in the crowd and provide all data about that individual, including activating the alert system in case of need. .
Viettel Solutions’ facial recognition solution is also the first solution of Vietnam to reach the Top 30 in the most difficult global quality assessment and measurement test of the US National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST – one of the most prestigious measurements in the world.
Achievements of facial recognition technology Make in Vietnam
Face recognition technology is being widely applied in leading developed countries such as the US, European countries, China,… Currently, people have many ways to exploit the potential of facial recognition. face detection in fields such as finance and banking, business, retail, security, etc.
Along with the strong development of technology along with the increasing importance of personalization, this technology is forecasted to be present in almost all fields. Infiniti Research Limited (Global Market Research and Forecasting Organization) forecasts that the global facial recognition technology market will grow by USD 18.1 billion from 2020 to 2024 and reach USD 22.7 billion by 2024. year 2027.
However, to be able to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to recognize a person through biometric algorithms is not simple, especially in a large space. This is also the hardest of the NIST assessments, but also the best way to bring this technology into everyday life. Viettel’s facial recognition technology has done that.
“Personally, I am very proud, happy and delighted with the success of the team. Here’s the success for Lesson 1:N, regarding identifiers. NIST’s first post is 1:1, simply for authentication, such as EKYC“, said Mr. Le Thanh Cong, Deputy General Director of Viettel Solutions.
The Verification assessment verifies faces, comparing 1:1 whether the two faces are the same or not. Face Identification Assessment, which compares 1:N a person’s face with a large database of people to identify that person.
NIST requires that all solutions are required to be processed on a computer (limited to 1 CPU core) in less than 1 second per image. The goal of these rigorous standards is to find an accurate method of identification and optimize processing time, ensuring high practical applicability. The results show that Viettel Solutions’ technology takes less than 0.1 second to solve the given problem with extremely low error.
“Passing this most difficult test contributes to the affirmation that our Vietnamese products can be equivalent to the solutions provided by the world’s leading enterprises. That is the driving force, not only for us, but for all Vietnamese in asserting our technological position.“, said Cong.
Great application potential and technological autonomy of Vietnamese people
Unlike other authentication technologies, facial recognition offers benefits such as contactless, improved accuracy, and increased security. Plus, it’s easy to integrate with existing security features.
In Vietnam, this technology is currently being applied in access control solutions such as detecting people entering and leaving restricted areas, deployed from January 2021. Currently, Viettel has integrated this solution into the VMS platform (Viettel Management System) and the IVA platform (Intelligent Video Analytics), which are effective applications in Viettel’s Smart Operations Center models in different locations. local.
Talking about potential applications, Mr. Le Thanh Cong said that the solution can also be applied to solve the problem of criminal traceability, identification and detection of suspects. It can also be used for border and immigration areas. In addition, during the recent Covid-19 pandemic, this technology was also deployed to the camera system to recognize faces, detect people not wearing masks and control security …
In the context of increasing personalization, this solution becomes completely suitable to be deployed this system at the entrance to the office, building, unit…. Not only stopping at detecting new people, it can identify patrons, help customers feel more welcome and also reduce pressure on security forces.
However, besides the application potentials, Viettel Solutions’ solutions also have greater meanings for the technological autonomy of Vietnamese people. Passing the NIST test not only shows that Vietnamese technology can completely compete with the world’s technology giants, but also contributes to technology mastery.
“Currently, the technology exchange is taking place quite simply and open, but in the future, it will not be known how. Because of that, Viettel is mastering technology to create competitiveness in a sustainable way,” shared Le Thanh Cong.
In addition, Viettel’s facial recognition technology also contributes to affirming the research ability and technology mastery of Viettel Solutions – one of the corporations representing Viettel Group in pioneering social creation activities. number.
