  • Patent number: 11341378
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes an input, a blood-relative list generator, a similar image searcher, and a suspect information generator. The input receives DNA information of a suspect and facial image relating to a plurality of facial images. The blood-relative list generator generates a list of blood relatives who are presumed to be blood relatives of the suspect from a plurality of pieces of DNA information. The similar image searcher calculates degree of similarity between facial images of persons on the blood-relative list and each of the plurality of facial images, and searches for and retrieves a facial image resembling the image of the person on the blood-relative list based on the calculated degree of similarity. The suspect information generation part generates suspect information by associating information relating to the retrieved facial image with information relating to the person on the blood-relative list who resembles the retrieved facial image.

  • Patent number: 11334654
    Abstract: Systems for enhanced security using biometric controls are provided. A user may launch an application on a user device and one or more rules or instructions may be executed activating enhanced security functions for the application. As the user interacts with a touch screen display of the device, user input including biometric data may be captured. The biometric data may be compared to pre-stored biometric data of the user. If the biometric data matches the pre-stored data, the system may capture additional user input and biometric data and analyze that data to verify the user. If the biometric data does not match the pre-stored data, functionality and/or accessibility of the application may be modified. The system may continue to capture user input and/or biometric data and if the registered user's data is again recognized, the functionality and/or accessibility may again be modified to provide access to the registered user.

  • Patent number: 11328532
    Abstract: A face identification system detects that a user is wearing a facemask, by finding an area on the face image which has no facial recognition facial features, and that area is a continuous area and includes the nose and mouth of the user, being covered by the mask. Responsive to making this detection, the system determines that the user is wearing a facemask and carries out a facemask recognition operation. The facemask recognition operation can include finding some other way to verify the user, or reducing security so that the user can be verified while still wearing the facemask.
