Top 19 Python face-recognition Projects

  • Face Recognition

    The world's simplest facial recognition api for Python and the command line

    Project mention: Facial recognition | | 2021-10-18
  • facenet

    Face recognition using Tensorflow

    Project mention: CompreFace - Free and open-source self-hosted face recognition system from Exadel | | 2021-05-07

    As for me, openface is already outdated - the latest release was in 2016. If you look for a library, the easiest to use is ageitgey/face_recognition. The more accurate libraries are davidsandberg/facenet and deepinsight/insightface.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • insightface

    State-of-the-art 2D and 3D Face Analysis Project

  • howdy

    🛡️ Windows Hello™ style facial authentication for Linux

    Project mention: Yubikey, Nitrokey :Does PAM need to be so hard ... | | 2022-01-21
  • deepface

    A Lightweight Face Recognition and Facial Attribute Analysis (Age, Gender, Emotion and Race) Library for Python

    Project mention: Face recognition | | 2021-12-23

    I highly suggest using a one-shot learning model like DeepFace. It works with just one photograph and you can use its verify function to get if it’s a match or not by comparing two images. It will have to iterate to compare each known face with the unknown image until it gets a match, but I imagine it will be better financially and efficiently than running thousands of jobs for Azure.

  • EagleEye

    Stalk your Friends. Find their Instagram, FB and Twitter Profiles using Image Recognition and Reverse Image Search.

    Project mention: print('Hello, world!') | | 2021-09-10

    The recent GitHub repository that cached my eyes is EagleEye. Link: This is a cool project that uses an image to find Facebook, Twitter and Instagram account. The project uses Python, Selenium library, Dlib _face detection library. I like Python and Selenium and found them smart. I also want to know more about machine learning so this project is perfect start.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • facenet-pytorch

    Pretrained Pytorch face detection (MTCNN) and facial recognition (InceptionResnet) models

    Project mention: Query regarding Multiple face recognization system | | 2021-11-25

    It's generally better to split the task into a multiple tasks. First I'd want to detect and extract faces. There are a number of pretrained models that you could use for that, e.g., Once you've extracted faces, you can train a facial recognition using something like a siamese network as you normally would.

  • Photonix

    A modern, web-based photo management server. Run it on your home server and it will let you find the right photo from your collection on any device. Smart filtering is made possible by object recognition, face recognition, location awareness, color analysis and other ML algorithms.

    Project mention: (Pi 4B) What's a good program for a photo gallery ? | | 2022-01-10
  • DeepCamera

    AI Face Recognition/Person Detection NVR. Machine Learning On The Edge, turn your Camera into AI-powered with Jetson Nano and telegram to protect your privacy.

    Project mention: Private Home Security and AI | | 2021-01-30

    Shinobi + DeepCamera?

  • MaskTheFace

    Convert face dataset to masked dataset

  • DeepStack

    The World's Leading Cross Platform AI Engine for Edge Devices

    Project mention: Deepstack: Open-Source AI Server | | 2022-01-19

    It took quite a bit of clicking to unearth the GitHub repo for this: and there seem to be plenty of other DeepStack-ish repos in the user's profile

  • linux_face_unlock

    A face authentication system for Ubuntu that works while logging in and running "sudo" commands with a friendly CLI to operate it.
