Camvi Set World Record in LFW


Palo Alto, CA – January 3, 2019 – Camvi Technologies announced today that its advanced face recognition technology set the world record in the University of Massachusetts’ Labeled Faces in the Wild (LFW) benchmark test.


LFW is a database of face photographs designed for studying the problem of unconstrained face recognition. It was introduced to stimulate research in face recognition for images taken in common, everyday settings. Since its original publication in 2007, LFW has been one of the best-known and respected benchmarks in the field of face recognition.


Camvi achieved a record-breaking accuracy of 99.87% as published in the LFW results. In addition, in the most recent Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) report released by the National Institute of Standards and Technology on November 15, 2018, Camvi was ranked #1 in the world for Wild Image accuracy. Unconstrained wild images are the most challenging for face recognition, as they represent every day real-world images, as seen in surveillance footage and photojournalism.  


“Setting the world record in the LFW in addition to the FRVT results solidifies our leadership position not only in the U.S., but also in the world,” said John Chen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Camvi Technologies Inc. “While we are proud to have the world’s #1 ranking in the LFW as well as the FRVT results, we are also very pleased to deliver the record-breaking accuracy to our customers in our products at unrivaled speed and scalability. We relentlessly push the envelope in our quest for the most accurate, fastest and most scalable face recognition technology. We will continue to let our results emphasize our commitment.”


Camvi’s state-of-the-art, patent pending face recognition technology was recently chosen and showcased at the 51st ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Singapore in August 2018. Camvi’s core technology is embedded in its integrated suite of products including CamviServer, CamviEdge, CamviClient, and CamviAPI.
