OCBC Bank branches deploy NEC’s facial recognition tech

OCBC Bank in Singapore has been using facial recognition technology developed by NEC for the last two months, as the bank moves towards improving its service quality.

NEC’s technology, NeoFace, leverages AI to identify facial features in real-time, and thus recognise OCBC Premier Banking customers as they approach the lounge in the branch without needing to stop to look at the camera.

This is in turn being utilised by the branch staff, which will be able to provide a more personalised experience.
