Facial recognition technology has had several enhancements over the past decade.
Face recognition was limited to characteristics related to the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, jawline, and cheek structure in the past.
Facial recognition technology today uses complex mathematical representations and matching processes to compare facial features to several data sets using random (feature-based) and photometric (view-based) features. It does this by comparing structure, shape, and proportions of the face; distance between the eyes, nose, mouth, and jaw; upper outlines of the eye sockets; the sides of the mouth; the location of the nose and eyes; and the area surrounding the cheek bones etc.
It has been fully developed and applied to daily life.
