Touch-Free Employee Login at Scale





The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated the usage of touch-free solutions in employment settings. Fingerprint sensors are standard practice in the industry and currently require a replacement at short notice. For this purpose, we present an inexpensive, facial recognition login solution using Python.

Modern deep-learning-based facial recognition techniques offer a fast, robust, and accurate solution to this problem and are easy to implement in Python. This talk will focus on the design and implementation of this scalable solution along with presenting a few valuable lessons we learned during the process.

Here is the outline of the talk (Total time - 30 mins)
