"Face recognition SDK" and "Insight SDK"~

Japan Computer Vision Corp. (HQ: Tokyo, hereafter referred to as "JCV"), is a SoftBank Corp. subsidiary company providing computer vision based AI software and hardware to Japanese customers. 

Today, JCV is launching a new series of SDKs which allow developers to combine face recognition and human attribute analysis into their existing applications. The new SDKs will be available starting January 31st 2020. 

"JCV Face Recognition SDK", is powered by SenseTime's world-class Face Recognition algorithms which provide well known performance and accuracy characteristics. This robust SDK can be used for identification and authentication in mission critical environments such as hotels, banks, face based door locks in houses or lockers, or face recognition based smart building access.

"JCV Insight SDK" extracts and analyzes not only face but also body attributes of visitors using standard HD video. The SDK gathers insightful data covering from gender, age, attire, facial expression, watching time, dwelling time, and number of previous visits. This data can create a  deeper understanding of customer behavior which can be used to improve customer experience and create a first-class concierge level of service. This type of enhanced customer data from video can also enable optimized merchandise layout and more effective events operations. 

JCV will be exhibiting this SDK series at Retail Tech Japan 2020 held at Makuhari Messe during 3rd ~ 6th March, 2020, with interactive demonstrations.
