Intel has debuted a new camera system called RealSense ID which uses on-device AI for facial authentication.

RealSense ID is designed for a range of applications including smart locks, access control, point-of-sale, ATMs, kiosks, and more.

An on-device active depth sensor is combined with a neural network to perform secure facial authentication at the edge.

Sagi Ben Moshe, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Emerging Growth and Incubation at Intel, said:

“Intel RealSense ID combines purpose-built hardware and software with a dedicated neural network designed to deliver a secure facial authentication platform that users can trust.”

Intel’s system works entirely at the edge and requires no network setup to simplify enrollment. Users can securely unlock sensitive data or physical objects with just a glance.

For those who’ve grown “lockdown beards” or started wearing glasses, RealSenseID adapts over time to the physical changes of users. Intel promises its anti-spoofing technology provides a one-in-a-million false acceptance rate when protecting against entry attempts using photographs, videos, or masks.

All data is stored and encrypted locally to protect user privacy.
