How are things with 20Face?

How are things with 20Face?

The UT spinoff 20Face, founded in 2017, developed a facial recognition algorithm combined with a unique self-enrollment system for the registration. Recently the company decided to devote all its attention to the business market. With two of its key technologies: access control and wander detection. In addition to that, a different structure, 11 employees in R&D, and a new focus. Since 2020 20Face also introduced face mask recognition. We spoke to CCO Edwin Hek about the latest developments and ethical concerns.
