Chinese face recognition can now identify people wearing masks

Chinese companies that specialize in facial recognition have improved the technology to identify people who wear masks after the corona virus outbreak.

The Chinese company SenseTime, described as “the most valuable AI startup in the world” and with a value of at least $ 4.5 billion, is one of several companies that improves face recognition to ensure that a person can be identified without that they take off their mask.

Instead of relying on a person’s mouth, the system can learn a person’s identity from only his eyes and the upper nose area of ​​his face.

People around the world are increasingly opting for medical masks and even breathing equipment to prevent them from getting the potentially fatal COVID-19.

The disease has claimed the lives of more than 2,700 people worldwide and infected a total of around 80,000 people.

Researchers have been working for several years on expanding the possibilities of face recognition, making it possible to identify people in glasses, makeup and facial hair.

But the outbreak of the corona virus in Wuhan, which has now spread throughout the world and which medical experts think is on the verge of a pandemic, has accelerated the rollout of technology.

SenseTime announced earlier this month that it would incorporate new functions into its all-knowing system to combat masks and corona virus.

These include thermal imaging cameras to identify people with fever, an important indicator for coronavirus.

SenseTime told Quartz this was currently live at three public locations.

It has now also added the mask-resistant algorithm to sharpen its vice-like grip on the personal privacy of citizens.

The system is widely used by the Chinese authorities and can be used to monitor people who do not follow strict instructions that residents are required to wear masks to stop the disease from spreading.

“These methods provide management staff with a full set of information about epidemic prevention, such as body temperature, mask wear status, and employee identity,” the company said in a statement.

Stanford University postdoctoral colleague Amarjot Singh is working on the development of face recognition using AI.

He told me South China Morning Post: “Face recognition identifies a person by locating several important points on the face and connecting them together to form a unique person-specific signature.”

Traditionally these include numerous markings around the eyes, nose and mouth.

But recent developments have meant that a match can only be made between markers around the eyes and nose.

The SenseTime algorithm is designed to use 240 main points of facial functions, but can match only those parts of the face that are visible outside of a mask.

The company claims that offices that use the system to identify and allow personnel will work in the building without staff having to take off their masks.

“The system that applies to office building entrances reads facial features that are not covered, including eyes, eyebrows, and nose bridge sections to identify employees,” the company told Quartz.

“So that employees can keep their masks at all times while still having access to their offices.”

HOW DOES FACE RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY WORK?

Face recognition software works by matching real-time images with a previous photo of a person.

Each face has around 80 unique nodes in the eyes, nose, cheeks and mouth that distinguish one person from the other.

A digital video camera measures the distance between different points on the human face, such as the width of the nose, depth of the eye sockets, distance between the eyes and the shape of the jaw line.

Another smart surveillance system (photo) can scan 2 billion faces in seconds, has been revealed in China. The system connects to millions of CCTV cameras and uses artificial intelligence to select targets. The army is working on a similar version of this with AI to track people across the country

This produces a unique numeric code that can then be linked to a corresponding code obtained from a previous photo.

A face recognition system used by officials in China connects to millions of CCTV cameras and uses artificial intelligence to set targets.

Experts believe that facial recognition technology will quickly catch up with fingerprint technology as the most effective way to identify people.
