Intel’s RealSense ID Facial Recognition Tech Can Be Deployed In ATMs, Smart Locks

Intel has launched a new facial recognition system, aiming to bring Face ID-style biometric access to ATMs, smart locks, and more. Intel RealSense ID pulls together an active depth sensor to scan the user’s face, with a special neural network running on a local chipset for increased security without PINs, passwords, or having to scan your fingerprint.

That’s become increasingly important over the past twelve months, as the lack of non-contact ways to access secure areas, authenticate payments at registers and kiosks, and use ATMs have highlighted some of the risk factors of the ongoing pandemic. While smartphones and tablets have embraced facial recognition, and systems like Microsoft’s Windows Hello does the same for PCs, the complexity of adding face biometrics to more humdrum electronics has slowed its growth there.
