Taiwan-based AI and facial recognition tech company CyberLink has announced a partnership that will see its FaceMe Artificial Intelligence-powered facial recognition engine utilized by Latin American airport services company Talma.
The integration of the FaceMa solution will see Talma introduce facial recognition, mask and temperature detection, touchless biometric access control, and attendance tracking to a number of airports throughout the Latin American region, starting in Colombia.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, facilities around the world are searching for solutions that can make it safer to resume business in the face of physical and social distancing measures that are being put into place to mitigate the spread of the virus.
While the pandemic has disrupted a wide ranges of industries around the globe, air travel has been hit particularly hard, with biometrics emerging as a go-to source for new and innovative ways of ensuring the safety of the travelers and staff passing through travel hubs every day.
“Large facilities and airports require a very strict access control environment to ensure the security and safety of employees. FaceMe is the perfect technology to enable airport service providers to reach operational excellence while meeting newly introduced health and safety guidelines,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO and Chairman, CyberLink. “Talma is one of the most trusted airport service operators across Latin America and this partnership speaks volumes to its commitment to not only the productivity and security of its entire workforce, but also their health and safety.”
FaceMe’s facial recognition solution and its ability to both detect if an individual is wearing a mask and if they are running a fever will be a valuable tool for Talma in helping to ensure that its operations are able to run smoothly in the age of COVID-19 and beyond.
Aside from health and safety measures, biometrics are able to provide streamlined touchless access control that can help to improve workplace management operations for Talma’s clients, collaborators and regulators.
“We pride ourselves on being an innovative organization always on the search for new technologies, processes and certifications that will truly benefit the airports we operate in,” said Gonzalo Aristizabal, General Manager for Talma Colombia. “CyberLink’s FaceMe AI biometric engine is the perfect tool for us to streamline access control and health checks, including mask detection and temperature checks, for our staff so they can deliver the highest caliber of service to our airport clients.”
