Long queues when taking a FlixBus, BusDriver has no time to help passengers

What it does

Identifies passengers by their face, so that they don't have to bring any ticket

How we built it

adapted powerful deep learning face recognition model (VGG face), run it on AWS GPU instances, created fast backend and frontend. We detect faces directly on the device to improve speed

Challenges we ran into

scala is hard. deep learning is hard

Accomplishments that we're proud of

it's really fast and it actually works

What we learned

What's next for FlixFace

other applications: concerts, stadiums, everywhere where those QR codes have to be shown
