What is FACEMAKER ? What the face can tell you is limitless in depth and breadth.
The development of the Nigaoe engine began with researches into the efficient transmission of facial video images in video teleconferencing and picturephone.
During the process of pursuing technological researches into methods of extracting and analyzing facial features from photographs and researches into facial recognition, cognition, and facial similarities, a system was produced as the basis for the “Nigaoe engine.” Rather than converting a photograph into a Nigaoe through image processing software, this system analyzes the input facial image, extracts the features that make up its distinct characteristics, and quantifies these features. The digital Nigaoe based on these numerical data can be freely arranged and possesses new possibilities that will redefine the existing “Nigaoe” image.
