facial technology


facial technology
n.
The technology required to identify and track a person using face recognition techniques.
Example Citation:
"Zelazny of Visionics said face recognition is less intrusive than iris scanning, another biometric identification technology. Aside from security systems and James Bond movies, iris scanning is not as widely used as facial technology, she said, which doesn't require buttons and cards."
— Maria Vogel-Short, "Drawing the lines on facial recognition," New Jersey Lawyer, October 8, 2001
Earliest Citation:
"Datamax chose Excalibur TRL because it provided the fastest and most accurate searching capability we have seen,' said Alex Stein, president of DATAMAX. 'The library's flexibility for integration was another advantage. We are already exploring Excalibur's tools for fingerprint and facial technologies."
— "Excalibur Technologies Announces Four Distribution Partnerships," Business Wire, August 28, 1995
Notes:
Note, too, that there's also a different sense of facial technology: A skincare technique that attempts to remove wrinkles and other signs of aging by toning the facial muscles. It's a bit older:
"Seven years and millions of dollars later, Ms Johnson developed the Optima system of 'facial technology', a non-surgical method of almost halting the effects of ageing on the face."
— "Ironing out the wrinkles," South China Morning Post, November 8, 1992
