苹果高管认为,Face ID技术完胜基于安卓手机的竞争技术

Don Reisinger 2017年12月14日

苹果宣称,它的Face ID技术的误差率只有百万分之一,完胜对手。

苹果的Face ID识别技术,可以扫描iPhone X用户的面容来确定是否解锁手机,这项技术领先于竞争对手手机中使用的类似技术。

至少苹果全球市场营销高级副总裁菲尔·席勒是这样说的。最近在接受荷兰网站Bright采访时,他表示,通过面部扫描来解锁竞争对手的智能手机或访问信用卡和密码等受保护数据,“糟糕透顶”。

据科技网站BGR表示,相反,按照席勒的说法,苹果的Face ID是“独一无二的”,因为它的质量不差。

苹果在9月份发布iPhone X的同时推出了Face ID技术。苹果宣传的行话是,Face ID技术的误差率只有百万分之一,因此使其变成一种非常有效的技术。

虽然很难说除了Face ID以外其他所有面部扫描技术是否全都“很糟糕”,但苹果的技术采用3D扫描,这意味着它可以分析一个人面部的轮廓和深度,再去决定是否允许其访问iPhone手机。而在三星Galaxy S8或Galaxy Note 8等手机中使用的面部扫描技术,只会捕捉2D人脸信息,因此可靠性更差,更容易被欺骗。

已经有黑客演示了如何用一个人的照片,欺骗面部扫描仪解锁智能手机。但苹果自我描述的优势可能无法持续太久。

上周,高通公布了新一代骁龙(Snapdragon)845处理器,用于明年的最高端安卓智能手机。这款处理器可兼容3D面部扫描仪,支持扫描和分析比Face ID技术更多的面孔识别点,因此很有可能比苹果的传感器更为准确。(财富中文网)

Apple’s Face ID technology that scans the faces of iPhone X users to determine whether to unlock the device is superior to similar technology in rival phones.

At least that’s according to Apple senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller. In a recent interview with Dutch website Bright, he argued that face-scanning for unlocking rival smartphones or accessing protected data like credit cards and passwords “all stink.”

In contrast, Apple’s Face ID is “unique” because it, well, doesn’t stink, Schiller said, according to tech site BGR.

Apple unveiled Face ID in September at the same time it introduced the iPhone X. The company’s pitch is that Face ID’s can be duped just once in one million tries, making the technology highly effective.

While it’s difficult to say whether all face-scanners “stink” aside from Face ID, Apple’s technology uses 3D scanning, which means it can analyze the contours and depth of a person’s face before determining whether to give him or her access to the iPhone. Competing facial scanners in devices like Samsung’s Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 only capture faces in 2D, making them far less reliable and easier to dupe.

Some hackers have shown how a photograph of a person can fool the face scanners into unlocking the smartphones. Still, Apple’s self-described advantage may not last long.

Last week, Qualcomm unveiled the new Snapdragon 845 processor for next year’s highest-end Android smartphones. The processor is compatible with 3-D facial scanning and analyzing more points on a person’s face than Face ID, raising the possibility that it’s more accurate than Apple’s sensor.
