Vingroup study looks at face recognition through masks

POSTED: 24th Apr

VinAI Research, a Vingroup-funded research laboratory, announced its results of a successful study on facial recognition technology that can identify people wearing face protective masks with stable accuracy.

VinAI Research has become one of the first units in the world to successfully study this technology. VinAI is willing to provide the recognition technology to the community for free to contribute to the prevention of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

VinAI's system uses a new and unique deep learning model developed by experts of the Institute for research and application of optimisation (VinOptima), to study a method with stable accuracy to identify people who may have their faces covered.

This deep learning model designed to reproduce activities of neural networks in the human brain, allows training and automatically extracting valuable information of part of the face to address the recognition problem when people use masks.

The study shows that The VinAI's system has significantly better accuracy than the current technology when identify people wearing face masks. Advantage of VinAI's recognition technology is a different algorithm and application of identification technology.
