With all the recent hubbub about patents, it’s only fitting the Mountain View giant is in the news as it recently achieved a big goal. Google recently won a face-to-unlock patent which is likely to allow multiple users share one “computing device”. In theory, it works in a simple way too.
My requirement is to implement Face Recognition for authenticating the user. When I made research online, I came across JavaCV as a possible library.
But I am also curious to know how face unlock works in Icecream Sandwich if any api's are available for developers?
I'd like to hear any recommendations and experiences please for face recognition software that can run on a centos server machine (command line only). What I'd really like is a program that runs in a web gui if such a thing exists.
A company that has acquired 100% of the ownership of a patent for an off-site transcription system – United States Patent 6,298,326 — in order to, in its words, “effectively administer certain patents for technology”, says it will be seeking residual royalties from Apple, for its Siri voice assistant, and Google, for the Voice Recognition technology in its Android 4.1 relea

I have an HTC One S 4.1.1 Sense 4+
I was using face unlock or PIN when it didn't recognise me (most of the time).
I wanted to turn this off but find the face unlock option in Security is greyed out and the message 'disabled by administrator, encryption policy or credential storage'.
I now want to turn off the PIN screen unlock and just use the ring.
