AI is starting to make a difference in various domains of activity, from health to law enforcement. Just last year, Tencent revealed that it would use facial recognition to detect underage gamers in hopes to make a chance in gaming addiction. Now, AI is able to help the police to identify criminals, even when they’ve been on the run for the last two decades.
DeepGlint Technology, a China-based company discovered they could use their tech to help the police catch criminals. The company’s goal is to provide artificial intelligence that can identify suspects more efficiently, via facial recognition.
The method actually worked, as the tech firm managed to assist the police in tracking down a criminal that has been escaping arrest for 20 years!
The company is supported by specialists in the field of computer vision and implies the automatic extraction and evaluation of important data from a single image or multiple frames.
Improved with the structure of the human eye, the framework is able to capture pictures and identify figures and vehicles within a distance of 50 meters. By now, it seems like the 3D image analysis technology helped the police capture of 100 suspects.
SenseTime Group, Yitu Technology, and Megvii are among the facial recognition tech organizations that are involved in fighting crime through scans and AI diagnostics.
