China will launch the first payment system based on face recognition

In 2015, China will launch the first payment system based on face recognition, Xinhua News Agency reported with reference to the Chongqing Institute of Intellectual Technologies at the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The Institute is the first organization in the country to develop technologies in this field. The launch of the system will make it easier to make payments. To do this, it is enough to install a special application on your mobile device, and then take a picture of yourself, experts explained.

Researchers plan to develop a payment terminal. The new device will perform automatic identification of the subscribers by the video image. Its module recognizes faces "captured" by the detector by comparing them with a previously created base of reference images. It takes only 4-6 seconds to complete the payment.

Reportedly, face recognition technologies are widely used in various fields. Compared to fingerprint identification, face identification is more reliable.
