Clearview AI’s Revolutionary Facial Recognition Platform Awarded U.S. Patent

January 31, 2022 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 31, 2022--

Clearview AI, the leading facial recognition company that provides powerful and reliable photo identification technology to law enforcement agencies across the country, has been awarded a U.S. patent for its platform’s unique facial recognition capability that has performed nearly flawlessly in the recent National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) Facial Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT).

The “Methods for Providing Information About a Person Based on Facial Recognition” patent, U.S. Patent No.11,250,266, issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), is the first of its kind for a facial recognition company and was awarded to Clearview AI for its ability to gather publicly available information from the open internet (social media sites, mugshots, news sites and more) and then accurately match similar photos using its proprietary facial recognition algorithm. While many facial recognition technologies exist, it is the combination of gathering information from the public internet with facial recognition capabilities that earned Clearview AI patent protection.

Clearview AI’s algorithm for facial recognition recently achieved superior accuracy and reliability across all demographics, ranking No. 1 in the U.S. in all categories as verified by National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) Facial Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT).
