High-tech Initiative -- Application of Face Recognition Technology

No more need to fuss about your admission documents and oversized luggage. High-tech initiative saves our international students from all those troubles. Registration can be conducted via newly-developed facial recognition technology. All you have to do is to stand in front of the certain face acquisition device. The system will quickly capture your real-time image collected on the scene. With the database, the system can accurately identify your identity in a short time. The digital orientation platform is seamlessly connected with the face recognition system, which is the first to realize intelligence operation in the on-spot registration process, and optimizes the procedures such as verifying documents and finding information, thus greatly saves time and improves the registration efficiency.
