CyberLink’s FaceMe Facial Recognition technology merged with Genio, MediaTek’s New AIoT Platform to Enable Edge Based Facial Recognition


CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a pioneer of AI and facial recognition technologies has integrated its AI facial recognition engine, FaceMe®, in MediaTek’s new AIoT platform, Genio. The pairing of FaceMe’s accurate and versatile engine with the high-performing and power-efficient Genio platform gives the market a premium edge AI solution for rich facial recognition AIoT applications.

Powerful Edge Computing for Rapid Facial Recognition with Low Latency

Top-ranked globally by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Facial Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) – with an accuracy rate of 99.7% and error rate (False Match Rate) as low as 1 in 1 million- CyberLink’s cross-platform AI facial recognition engine, FaceMe already supports numerous operating systems and is optimized for IoT and AIoT platforms.

With the recent MediaTek’s Genio 1200 integration, FaceMe further provides IoT/AIoT developers and system integrators precise facial recognition capabilities for flexible deployment across various industries and use cases, including security, access control, public safety, smart banking and smart retail. By bringing compute power to where the data is collected, edge computing provides rapid recognition times (within milliseconds), low latency, high privacy and security, scalability, improved neural networks, and more efficient use of network bandwidth.

An Integration for Robust and Scalable AIoT Facial Recognition

MediaTek Genio is a comprehensive platform stack for the AIoT, encompassing power-efficient chips, open platform software development kits (SDKs), a complete set of AI model fine tuning tools, and technical support. As the flag-ship chip in the Genio family, Genio 1200 is designed for premium AIoT products and their edge processing needs. With a chipset combination of CPU, GPU, and AI Processing Unit that maximizes AI capabilities, it perfectly meets the superior multimedia performance and power efficiency needs of AI facial recognition technology like FaceMe. As a result, the FaceMe-Genio 1200 integration has already produced outstanding results on Android devices.
