Mobile Payment via Face Recognition
The payment system has come a long way to evolve into the form we’re using day by day now. Throughout the history of mankind, we’ve gone from using shells, coins, cash, cheques, credit cards, to online banking, contactless payment and mobile transactions.
It is vital to authenticate that the person initiating the mobile transaction is indeed the right person. There are a few way to do so, and one of it is through facial recognition.
To make it work, a lot of money and effort have to be invested into developing the algorithm behind it, thus, it’s important to protect the IC that stores the brain (i.e. algorithm) of the important feature of your product, in this case, the face recognition engine.
