iPhone X: FaceID fail at launch

20,106 Views

Uploaded by Stories Viewer Apple exec Craig Federighi took to the stage today at the Steve Jobs Theater to demonstrate the facial recognition capabilities of the firm’s highly-anticipated $1,000 iPhone X.

But, embarrassingly, FaceID didn’t work on first attempt – instead prompting the Apple exec to use his passcode for access.

In another try on a backup phone, however, Federighi was able to successfully unlock the device with nothing more than a glance.

‘Let’s try that again,’ said Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering, after the brief on-stage glitch.

To unlock the new phone, users can use facial recognition, which Apple calls Face ID.

'Nothing has ever been so simple,’ explained Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple. ‘This is the future of how we'll unlock our phones.'

A new TrueDepth camera system includes an infrared camera, and other new technology.

The Face ID will learn your face, so every time you glance at the iPhone, it detects your face - even in the dark.

It works by projecting infrared dots out onto your face, which feeds information back into an AI computer, to create a model of the face and check it against the owner. 'This happens in real time, and invisibly,’ Schiller said.

The built in chip that controls Face ID is built with a neural engine, allowing it to execute 600 billion operations per second.
