Company’s like Sensory have incorporated facial recognition as part of their software solutions. Some of the challenges in developing this software are:
In practice, facial unlocking can be unnerving. I use it with the Samsung S8 (which can be broken with a photo of the user’s face) and find that it works 60–70% but the rest of the time, it’s frustrating and results in me making weird facial expressions while pressing the retry button. The other times, it unlocks while I’m entering the pass code, resulting in me pressing something unintentionally on an app after the device has been unlocked.
It’s still early for facial recognition and we’ll likely see the issues on the S8 being resolved a few years after Apple starts implementing it.
