For a long time, it seemed that getting accurate image recognition was a computationally very difficult and hard task. Developers and researchers found it difficult to be able to program their way to distinguishing one face from another and in different positions, lighting situations, and facial expressions. Then Deep Learning came and changed everything. Into this space are a variety of companies rapidly dominating with powerful image recognition and classification systems. Chinese company SenseTime has achieved significant market adoption and strength across a wide range of industries with their powerful image recognition technology. In particular, their face recognition technology has an almost unrivaled accuracy rate, with an error rate of below 1 in 100,000.
