Description

Facial Recognition and Video Analytics in the highly challenging crowded environments

While Facial Recognition and Video Analytics works perfectly well in fully controlled environments and setups (i.e. immigration counters), the majority of the real-life business use cases in the public and private sectors involves fully uncontrolled environments, different weather conditions, crowded scenes, uncooperative and in-motion subjects, and in recent cases mobile/wearable cameras which are in motion as well. During the session, we will explore innovative methods for achieving high accuracy detections in fully uncontrolled environments using cutting-edge computer vision and ML technologies
