The OpenBR project has produced a new language for image recognition used to express algorithms. Each word in the language corresponds to a plugin that performs a specific transformation on an image, allowing for highly decoupled development of the individual steps in an algorithm. The OpenBR 0.4.0 framework (Open Source Biometric Recognition) and related APIs apply complex algorithms to measure and recognize facial features and give access control using advanced biometrics. The C++ plugins include Face Recognition, Age Estimation, and Gender Estimation. OpenBR is written in a subset of C++ and is known to work with all popular modern C++ compilers. The project is actively maintained on Windows, Mac, and Linux, with ports to Android & iOS. The Open BR API helps extend the functionality of OpenBR.
