Facial Recognition Technology

Facial Recognition Technology

Project Summary


Better Business Butler is working on the Augmented Human Intelligence Project! The overall goal of this project is to use facial recognition software to be able to identify members of a country club when they enter the facility. Once the member has been recognized by the system, the system will output an ID photo and name to assist the waitstaff in recognizing a large number of members.

The project is a proof-of-concept for the club member identification problem a country club faces and is a piece of a broader final goal of providing a more personalized experience to club members. The result of this project could be used by later projects for the country club to integrate into their existing customer service systems, design a staff-friendly interface, or autonomously catalog member preferences.
