Taiwan's E SUN Bank has teamed up with NEC Corporation to roll out ATMs featuring facial recognition technology.
The bank has so far installed the ATMs - which feature NEC's facial recognition AI engine, 'NeoFace' - at five locations.
When using one of the machines for the first time, customers insert their cards and have a photo taken of their face. A one-time password is then sent to their phone, which is entered at the ATM to complete registration.
After this, customers can carry out transactions simply by showing their faces and entering their PINs.
CaixaBank in Spain this month announced plans to introduce facial recognition - with no PIN entry - across its entire ATM network from the second half of 2019.
