In recent years, the state has issued a series of policies on identity recognition, taking face recognition as an example: since 2015, the state has intensively issued laws and regulations such as guidance on remote opening of RMB accounts by banking financial institutions (Draft for comments), technical requirements for security video surveillance face recognition system, information security technology and security technical requirements for network face recognition authentication system, It has laid a solid foundation for the popularization of face recognition in the fields of finance, security, medical treatment and so on, and cleared away the policy obstacles. In addition, at the end of 2017, the Ministry of industry and information technology issued the three-year action plan for promoting the development of a new generation of artificial intelligence industry (2018-2020). It is mentioned in the plan to focus on cultivating and developing intelligent products such as video image identification system and promoting the integrated application of intelligent products in economy and society.
In terms of identity recognition technology, it presents the following development trends: 1. New technologies are applied. In addition to face recognition, iris recognition, fingerprint recognition, voice recognition, vein recognition and other recognition technologies, there are also new technologies such as signature recognition, gait recognition, and heartbeat recognition. 2. Identity recognition technology permeates and integrates with each other. Different recognition technologies have different recognition accuracy, cost, convenience and acceptability of the audience, so the scenes suitable for application are not exactly the same. However, with the maturity and improvement of the technology itself, there is also a trend of mutual penetration and integration in the application scenes. The development trend of identification technology is more extensive, safer and more convenient, which lies in the wide range of application scenarios, the safety of technology and solutions, and the good user experience of the audience.
The Research Report on the market analysis and development prospect of China’s fingerprint identification system from 2017 to 2021 released by xinsijie industrial research center points out that with the development of society, the identity identification market trend presents the following characteristics:
First, application popularization. Specifically, identification technology will enter the stage of large-scale application in 2019. With the rapid popularity of 3D sensors and the integration of multiple biometrics, each device can “see” and “listen” smarter. Biometrics and living technology will reshape identity recognition and authentication. In the future, digital identity will become the second ID card of people.
Second, technology integration. As an important entrance security link under the trend of intelligence, identity recognition will extend horizontally and vertically in the future market driving force. The horizontal driving force is the continuous extension of application scenarios, accelerating the expansion from traditional 2B (attendance and access control of commercial applications) to 2g (medical treatment, education, social security, etc.), financial industry, 2C and other application scenarios. The characteristics of each application scenario determine the applicability of biometric technology; The vertical driving force lies in the improvement of entrance safety requirements and technological progress, which promote the accelerated development of solutions with high recognition and high customer experience.
Third, business model diversification. With the deepening of the scene, build the whole industry chain model. The business model of identity recognition may also be diversified in the future, from simple “product output” to the whole industry chain model of “technology → product → solution → service → cloud computing / big data”. The whole industry chain model is similar to the smile curve, with higher added value at both ends. The technology at the left end and big data at the right end are the commanding heights of the future industry.
New thinking industry researchers believe that in the system level market, the main revenue is contributed by medium and large-scale systems, and more than 90% of the sales are contributed by medium and large-scale systems such as public security, national security and public interest. However, due to the increasing requirements of enterprises and government users for functionality, convenience and security, the medium and large-scale application system combining multiple biometric methods is the general direction of biometric development. In the consumer market, mobile phone is the main application market. From the technical point of view, fingerprint recognition application is relatively mature, and iris recognition will be the next development trend.
