Facial recognition is everywhere from our mobile devices to the grocery store to the door locks on our homes. A lot of photonic technology goes into making facial recognition operate from infrared cameras to vertical cavity surface emitting lasers that act as a light source in 3D facial recognition. As the technology improves and costs come down, it will become even more ubiquitous and solutions will be able to track our eyes, determine our identity even if we’re wearing a mask, and more.
The facial recognition market is expected to grow by $3.35 bn during 2020-2024, progressing at a CAGR of 12%. Market drivers include increasing identify theft, terrorist activities globally, increasing awareness of security systems, the integration of artificial intelligence and deep learning, smart home applications, wireless technologies, internet of things connectivity, and more.

Integrating artificial intelligence
Artificial intelligence is increasingly integrated in image recognition and in computer vision applications. According to the latest study released on the Global AI Image Recognition Market by AMA Research, artificial intelligence systems use a computer to process visual information to dentify specific objects. It categorizes the image that is based on content and performs image recognition.
Application fields include robotics, where robots need to recognize the objects quickly and accurately in the environment. In addition, it is used by autonomous vehicles to identify the pedestrians, signs, and other objects. And it is used in barcode recognition, optical character recognition, transportation, telecom, healthcare and other areas.
