AI technology with
SchoolBench utilises artificial intelligence (AI) to detect faces within photos and videos. In SchoolBench, the algorithm is only trained on your students. There is no cross school sharing of information.
Through the identification process, it enables SchoolBench to not only display who the student is, but all other pertinent information, like year level, cohort, house etc.
Powerful Artificial Intelligence system
The identification works by biometrically recording 160 points of the face from the supplied ID photos and then comparing them to newly uploaded images.
SchoolBench is smart enough to compare biometric information in the relevant timeframe too, as a child's face can change dramatically over time. New ID photos are typically taken each year and provided to SchoolBench automatically through an integration to your student information system (SIS).
Constant learning from Student profile pictures
Each year a new ID photo can be supplied from your SIS to keep the biometric signature current. It enables student identification to be kept up-to-date and provides you the ability to search for a student across multiple years with accuracy.
As the algorithm does not know your students, the ID photos are the initial data point, but over time as users confirm images or reject, the system learns and then becomes highly accurate in its assessment of who is in that photo. SchoolBench makes its own learning simple with user's click of a mouse.
Consent driven to respect
the Australian Privacy Act
By identifying students, the media consent provided by their parents is automatically applied to the photo. If multiple students are in the photo, a media consent will be applied based on the most restricted student.
If a student is on the do not publish list, when they are identified in a photo or video, it will be reclassified automatically as a do not publish. This protects the publisher, the school and student by applying the parent’s consent.
Sourced of truth is your Student Information System
Unlike many systems, SchoolBench wants to use information from your other systems to save you time and reduce the need for duplication. Many of Australia's leading Student Information Systems provide regular updates automatically to SchoolBench through an integration.
The information imported into SchoolBench includes student id photos, name, year level, cohort, house, campus and much much more.

Safely comply with
When publishing, Australian schools need to comply with The Privacy Act and Privacy Principles when showing images of their students.
By SchoolBench identifying the student, the media consent given by the parent can be automatically calculated.
With group photos, SchoolBench further protects the school by applying the most restrictive consent of the identified students.
