Smart Surveillance through AI

It has been more than 10 years since scientists offered software that can recognize human faces, and now its possibilities are quite promising. Face recognition is nothing new but the advanced technology due to artificial intelligence created a revolutionized facial recognition system. Ever wondered how the snapchat and Instagram filters work perfectly on your face? How do they have the ability to accurately map the geometry of your face? The advancement in technology embedded artificial intelligence to create a smart system able to do those things. Face ID automatically adapts to changes in your appearance. From glasses, to cosmetic makeup or even growing facial hair. It is designed to work indoors, outdoors and even in total darkness. Believe it or not!

When AI was embedded into facial recognition tools, a smart engine was created which showed us the importance of visual content and the rise of visual data software. That is what old face recognition systems were lacking. Therefore there were no “smart surveillance cameras” before AI.  Facial recognition has become faster and more accurate under all conditions, from different angles.

SMART SURVEILLANCE IS BEING USED IN ALL INDUSTRIES

Retail stores

use FR to track shopping habits. What are people buying mostly? How much are they paying per visit? Who are they shopping with? All those details can be amswered. Moving onto instore advertising. They makes the customer comeback? What attracts that specific customer the most? All these questions can be answered because of the data picked up from FR. In other word, making sense of visuals.

Religious outlets

have also been using FR lately. Other than the major need for security measures, especially in certain countries where these buildings are under threat. Religious Institutions also use FR to gather data on who has been attending the religious ceremonies. This data is used to identify the faces who haven’t been showing up so they can be contacted again.

Educational Institutions

don’t only use FR on their students, but recently on teachers. In many schools, admin has been complaining about teachers taking longer hours for break than allocated. Therefore, they can tack the break timings on teachers without them knowing anything. This is an effective technique that is done anonymously and very accurately.

Medical Centers

of course! Very beneficial uses of FR in the medical field that has helped save many lives. Smart engines are able to diagnose genetic disorders, specifically genetic disorders that have an effect on facial impressions. These genetic disorders can affect a person’s cognitive abilities and heart. Therefore once identified the necessary action can be taken directly without wasting patient’s time or money.

Facial recognition is generating “Big Data” and through data analysis we are able to make sense of this collected data.
