How to define facial recognition online? Liopa’s Chief Technology Officer Dr Fabian Campbell-West explains how facial recognition is used to authentice a person’s identity.

This process, however, can have some weaknesses.

The alternative?


Liopa’s specialism in the cutting-edge field of Visual Speech Recognition, and associated areas, has created three main applications for their products and expertise:-

  • Transforming Voice UI: Making everyday applications like virtual assistant, including Siri, Cortana and Alexa, in-vehicle voice control and smart home devices, ever better through improved accuracy. Liopa’s LipRead product uses visual reading and a proprietary machine learning approach for enhanced usability and quality.
  • Liveness Detection: LipSecure by Liopa brings real improvements to online and mobile User Authentication by confirming that a real person is present. Anti-spoofing technology asks a user to repeat an on-screen sequence of digits and is software-based for superb cost-effectivess.
  • Keyword Spotting: The power of the ability to identify occurrences of words/ phrases in video footage, bringing new capabilities to surveillance video analysis, broadcast monitoring and transcription.

In addressing both the existing strengths and weaknesses of facial recognition online, Liopa technology uses a state-of-the-art AI core to recognise speech from video alone and support biometric authentication systems through advanced anti-spoofing measures. For businesses and organisations, the era of speech overtaking the use ‘typing and clicking’ means issues with noise in the user’s environment and issues with authentication fraud can be addressed.

The Liopa team includes proven expertise across commerce, software architectural design and development methodologies.
