The whole idea of this technology came up in the 90s when ATM machine was introduced. The ATM machines used a special technique of reading the amount in the cheque when inserted in the machine. This similar technique was used to build these apps. Technique used special brains cells connected with each other and adjusts the strength of the connections between these cells almost similar to how a human brain does it. This technique identifies faces and discriminates it from one another in a single picture with faces.
