Over 9 years of web intelligence operations have yielded and continue to yield a massive and growing database of annotated faces and face data, highly suitable for advanced biometric security applications. Coupled with specialized tools, Terrogence SMEs are able to extract face-prints from online images and video with ease.
Face-Int™ is an intelligence based facial recognition technology. Terrogence actively monitors and collects online profiles and facial images of terrorists, criminals and other individuals believed to pose a threat to aviation security, immigration and national security. The Face-IntTM database houses the profiles of thousands of suspects harvested from such online sources as YouTube, Facebook and open and closed forums all over the globe. It represents facial extractions from over 35,000 videos and photos retrieved online portraying such activities as terrorist training camps, motivational videos and actual terror attacks.
Face records include contextual intelligence on the image’s online origin and the content of the source, including an in-depth summary of content, the region/organization of origin and the participant’s description. Each individual face in the visual-media item is isolated and processed for the production of a generic biometric high resolution image file to be exported to general biometric systems.
When exported to a biometric system, the Face-Int™ database allows for face captured images to be cross-referenced with existing profiles, so that suspects can be identified and apprehended within minutes of on-camera detection. This identification ability is highly applicable to border screenings, strategic facilities and bases with surveillance cameras, and for post event analysis for law enforcement and intelligence agencies. As governments are also faced with increasing threats from narcotics and drug trafficking, organized crime, fraud and economic crime and violent crime, Terrogence also collects and indexes facial images of individuals affiliated with such activities.
