Industries

Rank One's technology is used across a wide range of industries, spanning missions ranging from value-add advertising to national security.

Consumer Electronics

One and a half billion mobile phones were shipped last year. The number of smart consumer electronics, ranging from thermostats to refrigerators to televisions, continues to accelerate. The Internet of Things is at our doorstep, and consumers increasingly expect their devices to know when we are present and interact accordingly. Never has the need for efficient software design been higher than in the world of mobile and embedded devices. Rank One is the industry leader in efficient face recognition software for mobile and embedded devices.

Criminal Justice

All too often an egregious crime occurs and nothing is available to identify the perpetrator except a surveillance image. Whether it is physical or sexual violence, exploitation of the elderly, stolen credit cards, or countless other offenses that adversely impact society, automated face recognition is often the best resource available to help solve the crime. We entrust our local and federal governments with the responsibility of serving justice, and when used under established standards, automated face recognition can be a vital tool to empower justice.

Rank One knows this is a sensitive issue. We all are frequently reminded of the rise in authoritarian states, or the systematic biases in the U.S. criminal justice system and Rank One is mindful of law enforcement's difficult task in walking the line between saving lives and harming them. Our team has been involved in critical concerns around best practices in forensic facial identification for the last decade. We have worked alongside cutting-edge local law enforcement agencies, as well as federal agencies tasked with incorporating automated facial recognition capabilities for the first time. Our executives published the first scientific article that ushered in awareness of the mis-balances in accuracy between different races, genders, and age groups. We have worked alongside facial examiners and those who develop facial examiner training programs. We have advised the FBI on how their technology could be improved in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon Bombings. Rank One is highly selective of who we support and it is uplifting to learn about the lives we have helped with our technology.

Financial Sector

Consumers are increasingly rejecting the notion of going to a brick and mortar bank to perform transactions. As banking operations shift further into the digital realm, the need for more comprehensive online security has increased. Both via direct licensing and through our partners who provide packaged identity services, Rank One supports numerous institutions that provide identity verification services to the banking and financial industry, where our high accuracy, frictionless anti-spoof algorithm, and small binary footprint make Rank One uniquely suited for mobile app deployment.

Marketing

Those who recognized early on that Google and Facebook would become among the five most valuable companies in the world knew of the value of targeted marketing. The ROC SDK provides a non-intrusive and accurate means to detect the age, gender, and race of a person. Using this information, advertisers can serve more relevant marketing and promotions.

Medical

First world countries spend 10% to 20% of their GDP on medical care. Biometric technologies can reduce patient mis-identification incidences and help streamline medical care thereby lowering its cost. The facial biometric is ideal in the medical sector given it's low degree of required cooperation (critical for handicapped patients) and contactless nature (critical for preventing disease transmission). The ROC SDK can assist in the shift to mobile devices for patient management as large-scale on-device search can be performed instantaneously and without any network connectivity.

Security

Residents wish to know when strangers approach their home. Event staff need to know who is permitted entrance. Business owners need to protect their assets. Face recognition has a role in addressing these concerns by providing a virtual security guard or significantly enhancing the effectiveness of an existing security officer. The ROC SDK provides an effective and affordable approach for 24/7 security. Our algorithms are also purposefully designed to handle the challenges of unconstrained environments present in security, including inconsistent illumination, off-angle faces, and other confounding factors.

Applications

The ROC SDK's combination of accuracy and efficiency supports nearly any application imaginable.

Identity Verification Services

Scanning ID cards and providing a selfie to verify identity is becoming ubiquitous. Whether renting a home, booking a ride, opening an account, filing taxes, or recovering a forgotten password, there is a good chance it was performed using a face recognition system powered by the ROC SDK. Learn More...

Our customers are improving interconnectedness through turn-key products that allow them to scan ID cards, capture selfies, and confirm identity. They choose Rank One because our technology meets their accuracy requirement, is robust to spoofing, and is easy to deploy.

Access Control

We have a key to our house and car, a badge for work and the gym, a drawer full of cards, and countless website credentials. In the future, many of these tokens will not be required as today a wide range of companies are developing embedded devices to make access control easier and more reliable. Learn More...

As most access control devices operate on a tight bill of materials, ARM processors are chosen over x64, and every dollar saved on the camera sensor represents increased competitiveness. For these reasons, Rank One is enabling face recognition-based access control applications that other vendors simply cannot support due to their high computational cost, or requirements for high-end cameras.

Forensic Identification

Automated face recognition can offer an invaluable investigative lead when a detective is left with little but an image of a perpetrator. While humans are physically incapable of manually searching large mugshot databases, trained facial examiners can use automated algorithms alongside rigorous adjudication processes to discover potential matches. Learn More...

The ROC SDK is well suited for forensic identification due to its robust accuracy on unconstrained media, and efficiency that enables tens of millions of records to be searched in under a second.

Real-time Screening

The ROC SDK is the most relevant face recognition technology for processing live streaming video and identifying the faces contained within. Learn More...

There are generally three factors that matter the most when choosing a face recognition algorithm for use in real-time screening:

1. Algorithmic efficiency. It is computationally demanding to process streaming video. With up to 10x the enrollment speed of our competitors, systems using the ROC algorithms require only a fraction of the compute power.

2. Accuracy on unconstrained imagery. As shown by NIST FRVT benchmarks, Rank One is amongst the few vendors with accuracies above 90% on in-the-wild data. Many vendors, who are otherwise strong on frontal faces, simply cannot handle unconstrained imagery.

3. Usability. It is rather straightforward to detect a face in a single image and compare it against a claimed identity or a database. It is far less simple to perform these same tasks while tracking a face in a live video stream. Rank One takes the hard work out of this process. Our API for facial tracking, frame consolidation / down-sampling, clustering, and fusion reduces development time and our support team (the same engineers who develop the ROC SDK) is always available should you need help.

Support

Rank One is consistently praised for the degree of support provided for technical considerations when integrating the ROC SDK. Unlike competitors who send their support requests across the globe, our SDK engineers in Denver, Colorado will respond to your support requests in a timely and resolute manner.

Privacy

When you engineer a solution using the ROC SDK, compliance with GDPR and other biometric privacy laws is fully within your control. The ROC SDK does not store any PII, require a network connection, or perform any unwanted actions. Learn More...

There is no escaping the adverse impact a few select technology companies have had on nearly everyone's privacy. Whether it is social networks providing generous access to users' personal data, or backdoors planted in biometrics software, the message is clear to developers and users that privacy can no longer be assumed.

When developing solutions with the ROC SDK, decisions regarding data retention, storage and transmissions are up to the integrator. No hidden actions are performed by the SDK. It behaves exactly as described in the documentation.

Distributors

We love working directly with end-users but our priority is honing the ROC SDK to provide system developers with the most versatile face recognition solution available. Therefore, we are always looking for new partners that excel at business development and system integration. Our legal and accounting staff can help your team streamline the process of distributing our software.
