application for Google Glass finds your friend in the crowd
The application for Google Glass finds your friend in the crowd March 8, 2013
Can not make out the face in the crowd? Do not worry, the recognition of people you can find everything you need, even if their faces are not visible. Specially designed for the future points Google Glas s application can identify people by the clothes they wear. The name will be superimposed over it.
The group, which has created a system called InSight, partly funded by Google and the newly introduced technology conference in Jekyll Island (Georgia). It will help people to find their friends in the bustling crowd, for example, at the stadium or at the airport. Face recognition system can not work in such conditions, the developers InSight Shrihari Nelakuditi (Srihari Nelakuditi), because hardly anyone in the crowd will be looking directly at the camera sets.
Nelakuditi joined forces with Romit Roy Choudhury (Romit Roy Choudhury) and colleagues from Duke University in Durham, to jointly develop a recognition system that is based on the “print mode” of the individual, from clothes to jewelry, bracelets and sunglasses.
These prints, in turn, will use the smartphone application that makes a series of photos the user as he reads a web page, or sitting on Twitter. It then creates a file called «spatiogram», which includes the spatial distribution of colors, textures and patterns (vertical metal strips, for example) on the clothing worn by the people. This combination of colors, textures and patterns simplify the task of determining the identity of an awkward viewing angle or at a distance.
Of course, the question arises: where to store the prints? To preserve privacy, they will change each time you change clothes, so you can always remain anonymous.
“The visual imprint of man will be temporary, say, a day or a night,” – says Nelakuditi.
The first trial involving 15 volunteers showed 93-percent accuracy of human identification, even if he’s back. Sensor data traffic in sight glasses Glass will increase accuracy.
“There are many personal characteristics that make us unique,” – says Mark Nixon, a specialist at the University of British biometorii in Southampton. – “Clothes and movements are closely related to gait – and also an indication of the uniqueness of gait.”
The system will find a lot of applications, for those who want to attract attention to the job fair, and ending with those who resell spare tickets for the stadium.
In addition, it can help people with the disease, known as blind persons – a neurological disorder that makes people unable to find friends in the face.
Of course, the development and application of this technique will greatly reduce the chances always remain unnoticed and when necessary – anonymous. But this development has successfully predicted even fashion designers, and we’ve written about what disguise you may need in the future , so as not to fall into the trap of total surveillance.
