Apple is making Passwords Obsolete With New Face Recognition Patent

Por: LDG. Maria Jose Oyanguren Guedea

As we know, Apple solve all of our problems and make our lives easier.  For most of us, passwords are a hassle. Now Apple is about to make passwords obsolete.

USPTO published a patent application by Apple titled Low Threshold Face Recognition.

An electrical engineer recognizes that most patents do not amount to anything. But this patent is different. Apple is about to change our lives.

No more passwords. Imagine our devices recognizing our faces and touches.

Facial recognition is nothing new, but to date mass application, especially in mobile devices has been difficult. Apple solves the problem using only certain features of the face.

The phrase ‘ low threshold’ in the title means that the method can tolerate a certain level of false positives and still make an accurate face recognition.
