Senate bill would place a moratorium on feds using facial recognition

Senate bill would place a moratorium on feds using facial recognitionFacial recognition is being used by more agencies than ever, even as its accuracy and impact remain unclear. Several local governments have already taken steps to stop law enforcement from using it in various ways, and a bill introduced by two US senators seeks to do the same at the federal level. Senators Jeff Merkley and Cory Booker proposed the Ethical Use of Artificial Intelligence Act (PDF), which calls for a 13 member congressional commission to create guidelines before it's implemented. Members would represent law enforcement, communities likely to be impacted by the tech and experts in privacy and technology.

MIT-IBM developed a faster way to train video recognition AI

MIT-IBM developed a faster way to train video recognition AI

Machine learning has given computers the ability to do things like identify faces and read medical scans. But when it's tasked with interpreting videos and real-world events, the models that make machine learning possible become large and cumbersome. A team from the MIT-IBM Watson Lab believe they have a solution. They've come up with a method that reduces the size of video-recognition models, speeds up training and could improve performance on mobile devices.

Pose Invariant Face Recognition Using Pca

Pose Invariant Face Recognition Using Pca


Both face detection and recognition are very curious areas in the field of image analysis, computer vision and pattern recognition that has received a big deal of attention over the last few years. It has been widely used for the purpose of security and forensic science for identify of an individual e.g. at the place of video surveillance, airports, traffic, terrorist attacks. To analyze the information of face images: faster, robust and efficient face detection and recognition algorithms are required. This system has been facing problems in recognizing subjects of varying poses, illumination conditions, facial expressions, and face occlusions. Due to variation in pose relative to camera certain features like smile, open eyes or mouth, left side or right side of mouth or eyes, occluded mouth or eyes can’t be detected and extracted properly. It will be a critical task to detect a person with varying poses in vertical direction. In this work we present, face detection is performed by skin tone. Through PCA extract features and system is getting trained and tested. For face recognition process, Euclidean distance is measured and based on that minimum distance face is recognized.
