Lenovo was looking for reliable facial recognition technology for their notebook computers at a price point that enabled them to keep their prices competitive.

With the stated goal “to provide customers around the world with smarter ways to be productive and competitive,” the R&D leaders at Lenovo wanted to offer their customers a faster and easier way to securely log on to their computers and encrypt files without having to rely on passwords and PIN numbers that can be easily lost or forgotten. So when the company decided to create a facial recognition application suite for their notebook computers, Lenovo searched for a facial recognition engine that would enable them to offer high performance and reliability while keeping their products competitive in the PC marketplace.

Lenovo selected VeriLook from Neurotechnologija as the facial recognition engine for its PC user logon and file encryption applications that are now available in several series of webcam-enabled notebook computers, including the Tianyi series and L3000, Y310 and Y410 series computers.

After considering many face recognition engines, Lenovo found that VeriLook best meets their requirements.

Lenovo’s decision was based on a number of factors, including:

– The VeriLook algorithm provides the combination of accuracy and high speed required for PC applications such as user logon and file encryption.

– VeriLook can work with a broad range of cameras and resolutions and consistently deliver excellent results. This enabled Lenovo to keep their software better compatibility while implementing facial recognition technology in their notebook computers.

– Neurotechnologija provides a detailed development guide; fast, free and unlimited technical support and ongoing algorithm updates that ensure Lenovo’s products always have the latest technology and best performance.

– Excellent performance. Customers appreciate having the benefits of facial recognition technology in their notebook computers.

“VeriLook gives us a lot of flexibility in the development of our facial recognition-related functionality, ” said Meng Zhiming, notebook application R&D engineer for Lenovo. “Because of VeriLook’s broad compatibility with PC cameras and low hardware requirements, we can easily develop and integrate a variety of facial recognition functions that work on a range of different cameras and notebook PCs.”

“We’ve been working with Neurotechnologija for nearly two years now and we have been consistently pleased with their technologies and their ongoing commitment to their partners,” said Li Yongping, manager of Lenovo notebook application R&D. “VeriLook enables us to offer our customers advanced facial recognition technology that is both reliable and affordable.”
