  • I need to create a python program which uses camera to take photos and feed the identity data into a database. I have a Raspberry pi 3a+ 512mb ram. Is it possible and any tips?
    sudo pip3 install face_recognition git clone --single-branch https://github.com/ageitgey/face_recognition.git
  • Photo auto-tagging and facial rec scripts/apps
    There's quite a few decent python scripts/libraries that would do the job quite simply, such as https://github.com/ageitgey/face_recognition so you could script something up reasonably easily.
  • How Much Does Integration with Facial Recognition Software Cost?
  • Is there a site that will look for AI generated images?

  • Database for Face Recognition
    So I've been using this Python library to build a simple, Flask based application to recognize a face in an uploaded image from an already encoded set of known faces and it's works pretty well.
  • Face tracking with google image search?

    You could start with: https://github.com/ageitgey/face_recognition and then by use of Selenium webdriver https://selenium-python.readthedocs.io/ . Build yourself a bot. I suggest you also use sleep (from time import sleep) with randomized time pauses between clicks (because google will quickly start to see you as a bot very quickly). For saving the face-encodings you could use for example sqlite3 (I build not so long ago a application on sqlite3, face_recognition to link people by the images they are together on) or MySQL (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-python/en/ ). Saving the images is probably the most difficult. An option is to automate this process with PyAutoGui (https://pyautogui.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ ) . But be aware; your script will have an unkown experation time. With other words; it will be labor intensive, even when your script is finished.

  • CompreFace - Free and open-source self-hosted face recognition system from Exadel
    As for me, openface is already outdated - the latest release was in 2016.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.

    Face Recognition - Simple facial recognition library. Recognize and manipulate faces from Python or from the command line with the world's simplest face recognition library. Built using dlib's state-of-the-art face recognition built with deep learning. The model has an accuracy of 99.38% on the Labeled Faces in the Wild benchmark.

    Yes, see here: https://github.com/ageitgey/face_recognition (section Raspberry Pi 2)
  • I made a welcome sign to my basement using a pi4, a webcam, and a bunch of python script.
    What is happening is the webcam is constantly watching for faces using the face_recognition library. When it finds a face it fires off a video (no audio) using the rpi-rgb-led-matrix library!
  • OpenCV or Tensorflow or both ?
    reddit.com/r/robotics | 2021-02-21
    It’s call face recognition. Face recognition contains two step face detection and face comparison. If you don’t have any background on this I suggest you try the face_recognition python module https://github.com/ageitgey/face_recognition
  • How to run PoseNet model and save data points for multiple images?
    You feed the 17 landmark pairs as 34 inputs into a feed forward regression network (last time I did this I just tweaked something like this) with 34 pairs. However, it can help a lot to also add in the face detection to speed this up. So if you were to combine the landmarks from face detection as well like this face recognition and expand up to include the landmarks which helps I've found.
