Facial Recognition App Helps People Remember Faces at Event

Facial Recognition App Helps People Remember Faces at Event

Australia – At large events, it can be difficult to remember every individual’s name and face. The team behind Social Recall sought to solve this with their new event app. The software uses facial recognition technology to connect names with faces using smartphone cameras. This could potentially eliminate the need for formal introductions or conversely, awkward faux pas. The functionality is simple: event organizers send invites to attendees, a prospective user takes two selfies, and then signs in via social media. The app then activates within a previously defined geographical area at a specific time. When a user points their camera at a face, the app can identify the individual and display their name and social media profile. To protect privacy, it recognizes only those who have consented to participate and data automatically wipes after events
