We set up a custom-fit project on our in-house online platform in close consultation with the customer. This results in paid jobs/tasks for our registered crowdworkers, so-called Clickworkers. These tasks are made visible for 850,000 Clickworkers who match the demographics specified by the client.
Thousands of Clickworkers work on the project in accordance with the instructions obtained from the concise and descriptive task briefing. After specifying their ethnicity, the first step for each Clickworker who has accepted the task involves creating two new, short videos of themselves. In this case, they film their face, 1x with and 1x without glasses. While doing so, they slowly move their head in all directions and say a short sentence.
In the second step, each of the Clickworkers upload these two videos, as well as 60 to 200 existing digital photos of themselves — where their face is clearly recognizable — as a set to our platform. None of the photos from the set were taken on the same day, no photo is repeated, and covered in total a time period of min. 5 years to max. 20 years. The photos differ in terms of perspective or angle from which the person’s face is seen, styling (e.g. hairstyle, clothing, glasses, makeup), facial expression, and lighting conditions.
To ensure the correct implementation of the specifications, all the uploaded videos and photos are checked by our quality management team and selected accordingly. After being checked, the flawless sets are then transferred to the customer directly via an API connection.
This provides the software developer with over 300,000 photos of faces and over 6,000 high diversity videos promptly and efficiently. The software company uses this data as training data to train an AI system to clearly recognize faces until the error rate approaches zero and the system can be used for secure online authentication.
