CyberLink, a pioneer in AI and facial recognition technologies, announced a strategic partnership with Altek Corporation, enabling FaceMe AI facial recognition on Altek’s AI BOX. By integrating FaceMe with Altek’s Qualcomm QCS603-based AI BOX, it can be used as an edge computing device for surveillance scenario to detect and identify person from connected IP camera.

Altek is a leading supplier for vision technology, with solutions ranging from image sensor, camera module, deep learning chip, to vertical solutions for surveillance, automobile and medical. Altek AI BOX is a Qualcomm QSC603-based device running Yotco Linux. By using FaceMe AI facial recognition engine, Altek AI BOX can detect faces, extract facial features and attributions which including age, gender and emotion. It can be used in versatile IoT/AIoT scenario, such as analyze customer demographic and satisfaction in a retail store and identifying visitors in home or office facilities.

"There’s a growing demand for AI applications on IoT and AIoT edge devices. Thanks to the introduction of Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform, AI applications on lightweight IoT and AIoT hardware on edge devices are now possible,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CyberLink’s founder and CEO. “By integration of FaceMe and Altek’s Qualcomm QCS603 powered AI BOX, it demonstrated an ideal reference design to deploy facial recognition on IoT edge for smart surveillance applications.”

“We have long term partnership with Qualcomm of the Vision Intelligence Platform and co-developed a series of vision edge AI products including AI edge camera and AI edge box targeting for AI inference on the edge. Altek AI BOX creates new experiences in different IoT and AIoT like smart home, smart retails, smart cities and smart factories with quick detection response and absolute data privacy,” said Alex Hsia, Altek’s CEO.

Powered by deep learning and neural network algorithms, CyberLink's FaceMe is one of the most accurate AI facial recognition engines within the market. In a recent Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT), conducted by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), CyberLink's FaceMe ranked 12th among all candidates in FRVT 1:1 (WILD 1E-4), reinforcing its position as a leader of facial recognition technology.
