How visual-based AI is evolving across industries

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence is transforming the business world as a whole with all its applications and potential, with visual-based AI being capable of digital images and videos. Visual-based AI, which refers to computer vision, is an application of AI that is playing a significant role in enabling a digital transformation by enabling machines to detect and recognize not just images and videos, but also the various elements within them, such as people, objects, animals and even sentiments, emotional and other parameters-based capabilities to name a few. Artificial intelligence is now further evolving across various industries and sectors. Transport: Computer vision aids in a better experience for transport, as video analytics combined with Automatic number plate recognition can help in tracking and tracing violators of traffic safety laws (speed limits and lane violation etc.) and stolen or lost cars, as well as in toll management and traffic monitoring and controlling. Aviation: Visual AI can help in providing prompt assistance for elderly passengers and for those requiring assistance (physically challenged, pregnant women etc.); it can also be useful in creating a new "face-as-a-ticket" option for easy and fast boarding for passengers, in tracking down lost baggage around the airport as well as in security surveillance on passengers and suspicious objects (track and trace objects and passengers relevant to it).


Artificial Intelligence to ensure safe driving on Indian roads - The Statesman

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered solutions may soon make roads in India safer to drive. A unique AI approach that uses the predictive power of AI to identify risks on the road, and a collision alert system to communicate timely alerts to drivers, to make several improvements related to road safety, is being implemented in Nagpur City with the objective of bringing a significant reduction in the number of accidents. A project, 'Intelligent Solutions for Road Safety through Technology and Engineering' (iRASTE), has been launched to identify potential accident-causing scenarios while driving a vehicle and alert drivers about the same with the help of the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). The project will also identify'grey spots', i.e., by data analysis and mobility analysis by continuously monitoring dynamic risks on the entire road network. Grey spots are locations on roads, left unaddressed could become black spots (locations with fatal accidents).


"Sensor fusion" Science-Research, April 2022 -- summary from Arxiv

#artificialintelligence

We experimentally study the toughness of deep camera-LiDAR fusion designs for 2D object discovery in autonomous driving. In addition, we observe that the selection of adversarial model in adversarial training is critical: using assaults restricted to autos' bounding boxes is much more reliable in adversarial training and displays less substantial cross-channel surfaces. In this paper, we take on decision fusion for distributed discovery in a randomly-deployed clustered cordless sensor networks operating over non-ideal multiple accessibility channels, i. E. Thinking about Rayleigh fading, pathloss and additive noise. We have confirmed that the received power at the CH in MAC is proportional O and to O in the free-space propagation and the ground-reflection cases specifically, whereis SN deployment intensity and R is the cluster span. Sensor fusion is an essential subject in many perception systems, such as autonomous driving and robotics.


Clearview AI ordered to delete personal data of UK residents

AIHub

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) in the UK has fined facial recognition database company Clearview AI Inc more than £7.5m for using images of people that were scraped from websites and social media. Clearview AI collected the data to create a global online database, with one of the resulting applications being facial recognition. Clearview AI have also been ordered to delete personal data they hold on UK residents, and to stop obtaining and using the personal data that is publicly available on the internet. The ICO is the UK's independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest. This action follows an investigation that they carried out in conjunction with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC).

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) of the UK fined United States-based facial recognition firm Clearview AI £7.5 million for illegally storing images. The much controversial company has been facing such issues for some time, and this new development is yet another hit for Clearview AI. This fine has been imposed on the company for its practice of collecting and storing images of citizens from social media platforms without their consent, which is a severe threat to privacy according to several countries. Moreover, the ICO has also ordered the US firm to remove UK citizens' data from its systems. According to the ICO, Clearview AI has stored more than 20 billion pictures of people in its database.


UK fines Clearview AI £7.5M for scraping citizens' data

#artificialintelligence

Clearview AI has been fined £7.5 million by the UK's privacy watchdog for scraping the online data of citizens without their explicit consent. The controversial facial recognition provider has scraped billions of images of people across the web for its system. Understandably, it caught the attention of regulators and rights groups from around the world. In November 2021, the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) imposed a potential fine of just over £17 million on Clearview AI. Today's announcement suggests Clearview AI got off relatively lightly.

Since completing a degree in journalism, Aimee has had her fair share of covering various topics, including business, retail, manufacturing, and travel. She continues to expand her repertoire as a tech journalist with ZDNet. The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has fined controversial facial recognition company Clearview AI £7.5 million ($9.4 million) for breaching UK data protection laws and has issued an enforcement notice ordering the company to stop obtaining and using data of UK residents, and to delete the data from its systems. In its finding, the ICO detailed how Clearview AI failed to inform people in the UK that it was collecting their images from the web and social media to create a global online database that could be used for facial recognition; failed to have a lawful reason for collecting people's information; failed to have a process in place to stop the data being retained indefinitely; and failed to meet data protection standards required for biometric data under the General Data Protection Regulation. The ICO also found the company asked for additional personal information, including photos, when asked by members of the public if they were on their database.

UK fines Clearview just under $10M for privacy breaches – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

The UK's data protection watchdog has confirmed a penalty for the controversial facial recognition company, Clearview AI -- announcing a fine of just over £7.5 million today for a string of breaches of local privacy laws. The watchdog has also issued an enforcement notice, ordering Clearview to stop obtaining and using the personal data of UK residents that is publicly available on the internet; and telling it to delete the information of UK residents from its systems. The US company has amassed a database of 20 billion facial images by scraping data off the public internet, such as from social media services, to create an online database that it uses to power an AI-based identity-matching service which it sells to entities such as law enforcement. The problem is Clearview has never asked individuals whether it can use their selfies for that. And in many countries it has been found in breach of privacy laws.
