Rank One, facial recognition SDK provider, announced a periocular recognition algorithm. A periocular approach to facial recognition uses images of the eye and the eyebrow area to perform facial recognition. The release is timely given COVID-19 related social distancing and mask-wearing practices.
Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Financial, Messaging, and Augmented Reality. Highlights include the YellowSchedule API for scheduling and booking services, and the FaceX API for adding facial recognition functions to applications.
