Intel files patent for real-time facial recognition system

Intel Korea research engineer Wooju Ryu describes the face detection method in the U.S. Patent Application No. 20140341430, titled “Method and Device for Detecting Face, and Non-Transitory Computer-Readable Recording Medium for Executing the Method”.

Ryu writes that the method calls for the breaking up an input image into a set number of regions, then resizing those image regions and conducting both face detection and face tracking operations on the divided and resized regions.

By partitioning the input images, the individual is able to cut down the amount of time it takes for portable devices to process face detection in real time.

Intel continues to make a strong push into the biometric and wearable technology market through a series of developments and partnerships, such creating a new developer’s platform for the Internet of 

Things, a sector that is closely related to wearable technology.

The company recently announced it has developed a new line of processors that powers the Asus PadFone X smartphone.
