Appleが顔認識の特許を申請。ICSに早くも危機?

The technology works by comparing a current image of your mug to a reference model user profile made using “high information” portions of the human face, like eyes and mouths.Translation: it’ll take a picture, compare it against the pictures associated with various user accounts on the device and decide if the two images are similar enough to grant you access.Because this is just an application, it’s safe to say we won’t be seeing this kind of facial recognition in iOS anytime soon, but let’s hope it works better than the ICS version if it does. Update : An important thing to note is that Apple applied for this patent long before Android’s Face Unlock debuted a few months back.

 

 Appleが顔認識の特許を申請したとなればAndroid4.0の機能の一つのフェイスアンロックが早くも危機にさらされます。
Android潰しを目論むAppleですがこの特許を逆手に取るか、今後のAppleとGoogleの駆け引きが気になります。
