What is Face Recognition / Detection?
One of the most important applications of face detection.
Recognize and manipulate faces from Python or from the command line with the world simplest face recognition library.
Face recognition describes a biometric technology that goes way beyond recognizing when a human face is present. It actually attempts to establish whose face it is.
The process works using a computer application that captures a digital image of an individual face. and compares it to images from the database of stored records.
Face recognition with OpenCV, Python:
Learn how to perform face recognition in both images and video streams using:
- Deep learning
Install this module from pypi using pip:
pip install face_recognition
import face_recognition image = face_recognition.load_image_file("your_file.jpg") face_locations = face_recognition.face_locations(image)
Identify faces in pictures:
import face_recognition image = face_recognition.load_image_file("your_file.jpg") face_landmarks_list = face_recognition.face_landmarks(image)
Recognize who appears in each photo.
import face_recognition known_image = face_recognition.load_image_file("biden.jpg") unknown_image = face_recognition.load_image_file("unknown.jpg") biden_encoding = face_recognition.face_encodings(known_image) unknown_encoding = face_recognition.face_encodings(unknown_image) results = face_recognition.compare_faces([biden_encoding], unknown_encoding)
RECOGNIZE FACES IN IMAGES AND IDENTIFY WHO THEY ARE:
import face_recognition picture_of_me = face_recognition.load_image_file("me.jpg") my_face_encoding = face_recognition.face_encodings(picture_of_me) # my_face_encoding now contains a universal encoding of my facial features that can be compared to any other picture of a face! unknown_picture = face_recognition.load_image_file("unknown.jpg") unknown_face_encoding = face_recognition.face_encodings(unknown_picture) # Now we can see the two face encodings are of the same person with compare_faces! results = face_recognition.compare_faces([my_face_encoding], unknown_face_encoding) if results == True: print("It is a picture of me!") else: print("It is not a picture of me!")
