NEC Corp has developed a facial recognition system that says verification takes less than one second, and claims an accuracy rate of more than 99.9% even with the masks on the faces. This technology is amazing!

It is interesting that this technology was originally developed for the many people in Tokyo who wear masks due to allergies and pollen in the spring time. Many people in Tokyo have suffered too much from pollen in spring time. According to NEC, the system can be used at security gates in office buildings and other facilities. Acceleration of the technology due to COVID-19 may have a long term and positive effect on security management.
