IARPA_logo_EMThe Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency will start a new program next year to push for innovation in facial recognition technology, USA Today reported Tuesday.

Ray Locker writes IARPA aims to build representations by extracting results from videos, photographs and other imagery sources instead of relying on traditional two-dimensional image matching.

IARPA wants to develop validation tool that checks a person’s skeletal and musculature features against their age and facial texture, shape, dynamics and range of expressions, Locker reports.

The four-year Janus program is scheduled to start in August, according to the report.
