The Face Access Control application is one of a series of IoT reference implementations aimed at instructing users on how to develop a working solution for a particular problem. The solution uses facial recognition as the basis of a control system for granting physical access. The application detects and registers the image of a person’s face into a database, recognizes known users entering a designated area and grants access if a person’s face matches an image in the database.
Beside native execution, another usage model of using the Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) on an Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor is the compiler assisted offload (CAO). The CAO usage model allows users to offload Intel MKL functions and data to an Intel Xeon Phi processor by using the Intel® compiler and its offload pragma support to manage functions and offloaded data.
Intel® Math Kernel Library1 (Intel® MKL) is a product that accelerates math processing routines to increase the performance of an application when running on systems equipped with Intel® processors. Intel MKL includes linear algebra, fast Fourier transforms (FFT), vector math, and statistics functions.
