Facial Recognition as an emerging technology for authentication in biometrics is popular now for its seamless functioning and accuracy. It is a way of recognizing a person's face through technology. In biometrics, it helps to map countenance from a photograph or video which is then compared with a database of known faces to seek out a match. It helps in personal identification just the way we do but the only difference is it does it in grand scale, which is then stored in a database.
Studies say that the worldwide facial recognition market would generate revenue of $7billion, supported by a compound annual rate of growth (CAGR) of 16% over the amount from 2019-2024. And the biggest drivers of this growth identified is the surveillance of the public sector.
