Trueface CEO Shaun Moore has taken to Medium to recap some of the company’s recent accomplishments, and to lay out the company’s road map for the coming year. In that regard, Trueface will be moving forward as a Pangiam company, after Pangiam completed its acquisition of the facial recognition specialist in June.
Given that timeline, Trueface spent the first half of 2021 ironing out the details of the acquisition. However, the company has steadily worked to improve its technological capabilities throughout the transition. Trueface’s facial recognition algorithm achieved the fastest comparison speed in the world in the most recent NIST evaluation, and also scored well on the accuracy front. More specifically, Trueface was the third most accurate solution amongst all Western facial recognition developers.
Along the way, Trueface has taken steps to mitigate the amount of bias present in its platform. Moore emphasized the company’s ethical data collection practices, while Trueface itself has published a Fair Face analysis that tracks the company’s efforts to deliver accurate results for all demographics. The company acknowledged that there is still work to be done, but stressed that it now gets things right in 9,999 of 10,000 cases.
As it relates to actual business growth, Moore called attention to some of Trueface and Pangiam’s recent partnerships in the air travel industry. Delta Airlines and the TSA are installing Pangiam’s technology at the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta, and Pangiam is also working with Google Cloud to roll out a new security system that can identify dangerous objects hidden within luggage and commercial shipments. The companies are preparing to move forward with trials at airports in Aberdeen, Glasgow, and Southampton.
Trueface and Pangiam are hoping to target customers in both commercial and government sectors. On the latter front, the company enabled contactless face-based access control for two Air Force bases in the wake of COVID-19.
