A Study on various state of the art of the Art Face Recognition System using Deep Learning Techniques

arXiv.org Machine Learning

ABSTRACT Considering the existence of very large amount of available data repositories and reach to the very advanced system of hardware, systems meant for facial identification have evolved enormously over the past few decades. Sketch recognitio n is one of the most important areas that have evolved as an integral component adopted by the agencies of law administration in curren t trends of forensic science. Matching of derived sketches to photo images of face is also a difficult assignment as the considered sketches are produced upon the verbal explanation depicted by the eye witness of the crime scene and may have scarcity of se nsitive elements that exist in the photograph as one can accurately depict due to the natural human error. Substantial amount of the novel research work carried out in this area up late used recognition system through traditional extraction and classificat ion models . But very recently, few researches work focused on using deep learning techniques to take an advantage of learning models for the feature extraction and classification to rule out potential domain challenges. The first part of this review paper basically focuses on deep learning techniques used in face recognition and matching which as improved the accuracy of face recognition technique with training of huge sets of data. This paper also includes a survey on different techniques used to match com posite sketches to human images which includes component - based representation approach, automatic composite sketch recognition technique etc. INTRODUCTION As per the researches carried out, a complete face recognition system includes two patterns of face detection and face recognition: 1) Structural similarity and 2) individual local differences of human faces. Therefore, it is required to extract the features of the face through the face detection process. The evolution of face recognition is due to its technical challenges and huge potential application in video surveillance, identity authorization, multimedia applications, home and office security, law enforcement and different human - computer interaction activities. Facial recognition technology (FRT) is one of the most controversial new tools. It was first devel oped in the 1960s.


Making face recognition less biased doesn't make it less scary

MIT Technology Review

In the past few years, there's been a dramatic rise in the adoption of face recognition, detection, and analysis technology. You're probably most familiar with recognition systems, like Facebook's photo-tagging recommender and Apple's FaceID, which can identify specific individuals. Detection systems, on the other hand, determine whether a face is present at all; and analysis systems try to identify aspects like gender and race. All of these systems are now being used for a variety of purposes, from hiring and retail to security and surveillance. Many people believe that such systems are both highly accurate and impartial.


AI for Physical Security – Analytics Jobs

#artificialintelligence

As of today, lots of companies state to assist security firms, the army, in addition to consumers prevent crime and defend their private, homes, and buildings belongings. This particular article intends to offer business leaders in the security space with a concept of what they are able to presently expect from Ai in the business of theirs. We wish this report allows company leaders in security to garner insights they are able to confidently relay to the executive teams of theirs so they are able to make educated choices when thinking about AI adoption. At the minimum, this article intends to serve as a technique of decreasing the time industry leaders in physical security spend researching AI businesses with whom they might (or might not) be keen on working. Evolv Technology claims to offer a physical security system that consists of the Evolve Edgepersonnel threat screening machine that works with the Evolv Pinpoint automated facial recognition application.


Dubai CCTV cameras to use AI, face recognition

#artificialintelligence

Dubai: Thousands of CCTV cameras of various Dubai government agencies will now provide live feed to a central command centre, officials said. Under a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) network, security cameras across will relay live images of security breaches live to the central command centre, Dubai Police said. The cameras will monitor criminal behaviour in three sectors -- tourism, traffic and bricks and mortar facilities. The network, said the police, is being phased in via different stages to meet the Dubai 2021 Vision requirements of a smart city. Announcing the programme, Major-General Khalil Ebrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs, said the new project called'Oyoon' (eyes) will tackle crimes in the city and help reduce traffic accident deaths and congestion.
