[On-Premise] Face comparison on premise?



I'm currently learning on AWS Rekognition. I am quite interested in the AWS Rekognition SDK, especially the Face Comparison. Is there any diagram flow regarding this service? From what I understand, the Face Comparison is done on the cloud because when doing the comparison I need to upload the image.

Is the image that I upload saved on temp storage or not? And is it possible to do it without uploading the image so all the process is done on-premise?

Thank you

Hello, with search_faces_by_image API you can send Blob of image bytes up to 5 MBs.
The image needs to be saved in a temporary storage because Rekognition turns it into a vector to search a similar face in the Collection.

You can't use Rekognition on premise. Alternatively, you can use AWS Panorama, which is an appliance and software development kit (SDK) that brings CV to on-premises internet protocol (IP) cameras.

  • Ah, I see. Is it possible to share an diagram flow of AWS Rekognition Face Comparison because I can't find it anywhere? It may help me understand more from an architectural perspective.
