Neven Deploys Face Recognition Software

Santa Monica-based Neven Vision is reporting that it has deployed its face recognition software on Sharp phones for biometrics. The company, which develops facial recognition software that runs on mobile platforms, said this week that NTT DoCoMo has adopted its software for authorizing cell phone user access to applications. NTT DoCoMo has implemented Neven's biometric capabilities as part of its application, as a replacement for a password or PIN number. The venture-backed firm has previously deployed its technology for the consumer space as part of a marketing campaign with Coca Cola.
