Facial recognition technology launched
New system enhances security across company facilities.
Aramco’s facial recognition technology was officially inaugurated by Nabeel A. Al-Jama’, senior vice president of HR and Corporate Services.
Al-Jama’ was joined by other members of senior management as they visited the facial recognition system used at Al Midra. It is also deployed in the Core Area.
The technology uses artificial intelligence algorithms to match a human face on-site with an image stored in a database for authentication and verification.
The objective of the system is to enhance security measures by using your face as an unforged identity, which eliminates the possibility of misused ID cards to restricted facilities and enables seamless accessibility. The system also adds a video analytics capability to security CCTVs, allowing analysis of behavioral patterns, the identification of objects, and the conduction of forensics analysis when needed.
The project was the result of close coordination between the Industrial Security Organization and Information Technology, with the project being completed in six months.
The system database hosts 270,000 employees and contractors and opens the path to multiple digital transformation technologies such as Visitor Center digitalization and Contractor ID digitalization.
