How Face Recognition works

Hello to everybody,
I have a very technical question… I’d like to know how the face recognition is performed on Misty II. I mean, is there a special algorithm that runs when Face Recognition skill is activated? Is possible to have more information on this topic?

I do not work for Misty company, but I guess that you might not get a detailed response here because Misty firmware (including face recognition) is a trade secret.

If you want to use an algorithm that you know all details about, for example to publish a paper about research, then I recommend running your own face recognition code. There is lots of prior, open source work available, e.g., GitHub - timesler/facenet-pytorch: Pretrained Pytorch face detection (MTCNN) and recognition (InceptionResnet) models
