Numerical simulations and checks of face recognition software on given image databases represent a type of empirical research. Face recognition software works on the principle of comparing a photo of the person’s face with the photos in the database. The operation of face recognition software can be divided into three stages. The first stage is face detection, the second stage is face tracking and the third stage is face recognition. For this purpose, software solutions have been developed, with different work techniques. However, it is characteristic that regardless of the different techniques, each expresses its effect with a probability expressed in percentages. Simply put, for now, no software solution can be said to be 100% effective. For now, no computer solution can be compared to the human ability to recognize and identify a person.
