Galaxy S9 To Feature Face ID? Samsung AI Gets Facial Recognition Technology

International Business Times

Samsung Electronics has revealed that its Internet of Things or IoT platform now has facial recognition technology. Does this mean the South Korea tech giant could be incorporating a Face ID-like feature to its upcoming Galaxy S9 flagship? On Thursday, South Korean online news outlet Etnews learned that Samsung's IoT platform, called "ARTIK," has absorbed a technology that will allow its to recognize faces based on machine learning. This means Samsung products that support its IoT platform could also be capable of recognizing users through facial recognition. Samsung has also said that the machine learning of ARTIK can recognize faces with the help of Microsoft's "MS-Celeb-1M," a large scale real world face image dataset that already contains images of 1 million people.


Real Time Facial Expression Recognition on Streaming Data

Previously, we've worked on facial expression recognition of a custom image. Additionally, we can detect multiple faces in a image, and then apply same facial expression recognition procedure to these images. As a matter of fact we can do that on a streaming data continuously. These additions can be handled without a huge effort. Opencv enables to detect human faces with a few lines of code.


Artificial Intelligence can tell you your blood pressure, age, and smoking status -- just by looking at your eye

#artificialintelligence

Eyes are said to be the window to the soul, but according to Google engineers, they're also the window to your health. The engineers wanted to see if they could determine some cardiovascular risks simply by looking a picture of someone's retina. They developed a convolutional neural network -- a feed-forward algorithm inspired by biological processes, especially pattern between neurons, commonly used in image analysis. This type of artificial intelligence (AI) analyzes images holistically, without splitting them into smaller pieces, based on their shared similarities and symmetrical parts. The approach became quite popular in recent years, especially as Facebook and other tech giants began developing their face-recognition software.


Will the Recruiter role survive in the era of AI?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will change all our lives whether it is your personal life or at a professional level. In a recent article, the World Economic Forum quotes the co-founder of Coursera who says "AI is the new electricity". Electricity has completely shaped our lives over the last 100 years. Day-to-day activities such as crossing the street with the help of traffic lights, or using your smartphone simply wouldn't be possible without it. Think back how technology has changed our lives in just the last 10 years.


Samsung's next-gen chips point to Galaxy S9 face detection

Engadget

Samsung has unveiled its next-generation smartphone chip that will give its upcoming Galaxy S9 some iPhone X-like features, including face unlocking and animated emojis. The Exynos 9810 is built on its second-generation 10-nanometer fabrication tech, and will outperform the current flagship Exynos 8895 chip by up to 100 percent in single-core mode, Samsung said. The chip is likely to be sold in Asia, while US and European customers will get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip. Samsung emphasized that the new chip will be much better at AI, improving face detection, image recognition and other deep learning activities. That, in turn, will allow it to do real-time scanning of your face in 3D.


Computers Seeing People

AI Magazine

AI researchers are interested in building intelligent machines that can interact with them as they interact with each other. Much effort has been expended on "automatic deduction of structure of a possibly dynamic three-dimensional world from two-dimensional images" (Nalwa 1993). There has been considerable progress in the areas of object recognition, image understanding, and scene reconstruction from single and multiple images. This progress, coupled with the improvements in computational power, has prompted a new research focus of making machines that can see people; recognize them; and interpret their gestures, expressions, and actions. In this article, I present methods that give machines the ability to see people, understand their actions, and interact with them.


Demystifying Face Recognition IV: Face-Alignment

#artificialintelligence

One of the crucial steps before learning any Machine Learning model is data preprocessing. Most of the time we just center the data and set variance to 1 (as this make the optimalization process easier). In case of Face-Recognition, we need one-more step: Face-Alignment. What is this all about? In brief, we want to facilitate the task for out model by making the position of face constant (most of the time it means that eyes, nose and mouth are roughly at same position for every image).

Tokyo Olympics Will Use Face Recognition to Enhance Security

#artificialintelligence

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics has everything to be a significant technological event. If we already had an appetizer of this during the presentation of the city as the next venue of the games during the closing of Rio 2016, little by little, more information comes to confirm this idea. The latest comes from the Japan Times website, which talks about the use of facial recognition technology during the event. Citing an anonymous source, the publication says that the organizers of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will scan the face of everyone who is working on the games. This includes not only the event organization team but also athletes and media professionals.


Downbeat iPhone X sales projections hobble Apple shares

USATODAY

Apple confirmed a theory many users have had for years: the iPhone gets slower with age. The confirmation comes after Reddit users noticed their devices were getting slower as the batteries in their iPhones got weaker. Apple heads into the new year with some unusually downbeat news: its new iPhone X isn't proving to be quite the sales darling that some of its previous smartphones have been. Shares of Cupertino tech giant were down 3% in early trading Tuesday after several market analysts forecast lower than expected demand for the latest iPhone, with its edge-to-edge screen, face-recognition software and lofty price. Apple could cut its sales forecast for the first quarter of 2018 to 30 million units, down from an initial target of 50 million, according to a report in Taiwan's Economic Daily News cited by Reuters.
