Facial Recognition Proof of Concept

WWSG/SI, on the behalf of one of our customer and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), conducted a Facial Recognition (FR) “Proof of Concept” (POC).

The goal of the POC was to determine whether FR was a viable technology for efficiently clearing travelers entering and exiting the United States.

WWSG/SI sent out invitations to any manufacturer claiming to have a FR product.

Five companies were accepted into the POC.

Over 10,000 people tested the various products in three hour increments.

Results of Trial

Only FACEEX proved reliable…. matching over 97% of 6,400 travelers and staff in under 3 hours or 1.6 seconds per match.
