Facial recognition is a term for computer software that utilizes facial feature detection and pattern matching to verify or identify a person. Facial recognition is different from other biometric identification methods like fingerprinting, iris scanning and voice-printing because it does not require contact with the subject or any special equipment to work. However, some applications do make use of specialized cameras and/or lighting conditions in order to produce better results.
