Face Recognition is when a computer detects a Face using Face detection and then identifies the person's name or identity using a previously stored database of Face attributes.
There are two types 1:1 comparison & 1:N comparison.
Suppose you are trying to recognize only one person in a crowd of people (like in your face unlock app) you need 1:1
If you have to identify a group of people, you need 1:N face recognition.

|1:N Recognition (Face Search)||Face Search API allows you to create, edit and maintain a database and then Search the same to perform a recognition.||Read More here|
|1:N Recognition (Face Vector)||Face Vector, requires a bit more computation required from your end but gives you more control over your data storage.||Read More here|
