Thread: RecognizeMe - Facial Recognition Unlock

I'm sure with time the unlock time will go way down. It would be nice to use for passwords to certain things as well.

    Be nice if a app could be made that scans your eyes and checks for a pulse in them.
    Apple needs to add flash to the iphone!!

    That's pretty awesome a lone developer can come out with a tool like this that a multi-billion-dollar company cannot. I guess that could be said about most Jailbreak devs, though

    My security? I just keep my device in my pocket. The only people that lose stuff are those that put it down where they shouldn't. I haven't lost anything in 10 years, so I know the pocket trick works very, very well.

    Good second option if you ever forget your passcode

    Not bad for a first attempt...the problem is limited by the iPhones camera, as well as their algorithm. I work for a facial recognition company, the actual recommend threshold for decent security should be way over 80%. We can verify 15 templates in under a second at this threshold, but that is using an IR light-immune camera, something the iPhone doesn't/won't ever have, therefore this won't ever work decently enough. Like I said, not a bad effort and I'll enjoy showing the guys at work this!

    is this a precursor to the RetinaScan app for the CIA? haha zing! jk it looks awesome but i do have 1 question. what happens if someone looks at your phone too many times? does it wipe it or make it say "iphone disabled"?

    The lower the threshold, the easier it is for the application to identify your face. It does take a little longer when the threshold is higher but depending on your training sets, it could be faster.

    You're right good sir. That's SunSplash in Roseville. I'm not sure what the official part the mini-golf is called but my girlfriend has gotten me to call it "Putt-Putt" haha. And obviously my most beautiful, sweet, adorable, hot and sexy girlfriend is in foreground .

    The speed issue is due to 2 things, the processor on the i4 and the fact that DisplayRecorder slows things down. I have been using this since day 1, from alpha all the way to final and its amazing, and will only get better with later hardware from apple. Yes it will support iPad2 when a jailbreak is released. Early tests show its speed is 3-4x faster.

    Speculation on facial recognition iOS software has been floating around ever since the release of the iPhone 4. Rumors of Apple buying small companies (e.g. Polar Rose) with the purpose of creating facial recognition technology went rampant the summer of the iPhone 4 release. But to this day, no report has been stated or released the public from Apple about their progress. For all of us who are avid jailbreak community enthusiasts realize that any opening in this regard will soon be filled if Apple doesn't step up the game. An upcoming application will add the first facial recognition functionality to the iDevice.



    RecognizeMe, an application by Chris Simpson (@apocolipse269), allows you to unlock your iDevice using a biometrics facial scan. After training your face in the application, you are able to either unlock your iDevice with the passcode or facial recognition. The application allows you to make multiple trainings to help the recognition go faster. The intensity of the verification threshold can be changed within the application as well (e.g. 0% = Not Secure, 75% = Fairly Secure). When the passcode on your iDevice is enabled, RecognizeMe becomes an option after setting it up accordingly. At the lockscreen, when you slide to unlock, the passcode comes up and at the top it gives you an option to use RecognizeMe. Overall, the application is simple and works well. Due to its use of the front facing camera, it is only compatible with the iPod/iPhone 4 (or any iDevice with a front facing camera). When it hits Cydia, it will be $6.99 for the first 3 weeks and then $9.99 after.

    In the process of obtaining a .deb and getting this article all squared away, I asked Chris a few questions about RecognizeMe:

    JOSH: How long did it take for you to create a working version of RecognizeMe?
    CHRIS: It took me about 2 1/2 months to build a working version of RecognizeMe.

    JOSH: Were you working on this project solo or do you have team members/other developers that helped you out?
    CHRIS I coded and designed this application completely myself but used a few close friends on IRC to test the application each step of the way.

    JOSH: What part was most difficult about developing this application?
    CHRIS: The most difficult part was all the processing. This application does an INTENSE amount of it. Good news is, due to the fact that it requires a front facing camera, I could optimize it specifically for ARMv7 (as 3GS + has ARMv7), which means I could take advantage of some ARMv7 NEON SIMD instructions for image processing to speed things up (it got complicated and I'm using assembly).

    JOSH: Are you planning any other implementations with RecognizeMe in the near future (such as individual recognitions for certain applications)?
    CHRIS: I'm planning on making an Appstore version that is a "Secure Notes" type application.


    Also, Chris made a suggestion to make the recognition go smoother and faster. A key note to be wary of is proper light is important for quick recognition:



    Follow Chris Simpson on Twitter for more information regarding RecognizeMe and his other developments.

    This is all just a big gimmick at this stage. Takes way too long in a low security setting. Easily can be fooled ie: picture. And isn't worth the $6.99-$9.99 he is trying to spin it off as. All that said I don't even PC lock mine because even that takes way too long.
    Okay. So you say the i4 processor is the culprit? Then why even release it for this phone. Wait till the i5 pops out. Another reason why this is way too expensive for it's gimmicky functions at this stage.
