How Does Facial Recognition Work To Give DNA Paternity Results?

Facial Recognition is a technology that verifies who a person is or identifies someone in an image or video. Typically, some sort of database is used and matched with an image to verify identify. For example, if you’re using facial recognition to unlock your mobile phone or office door you have to scan you eye, face or other physical features so that those features are stored in your phone or office security system database. Once your scan your face or eye the system will review the database to see if it matches the credentials on file. The physical features once scanned are known as biometrics. Although the accuracy of facial recognition yields a lower ratio then other biometric technology like a fingerprint or eye scan it is widely excepted because it doesn’t involve any physical contact like that of a fingerprint to initiate the scanning process.

How Does Facial Recognition Tie In With DNA Paternity Testing?

Over the last few years facial recognition systems have merged with DNA Face Match systems offering a very user-friendly scanning algorithm to suggest predicted paternity and relationship results. For decades science has confirmed hereditary characteristics that pass from generation to generation. Some of these included dimples, freckles, widow peaks, cleft chins, skin complexions, hair textures, teeth shape, eye color, height and so many other physical traits. Combining this knowledge with thorough biometric facial studies offers extremely reliable results regarding DNA paternity testing, ancestry testing and facial relationship testing.
