(INTELLIHUB) — In the near future police will wear body cameras capable of ‘facial recognition’ to assist officers in searches for persons of interest.
The latest technology was developed by Neurala and mimics a process used by the human brain to identify the target rather than the standard process of elimination that’s traditionally used by other facial recognition systems currently available.
Defense One reports: “Versace’s research was funded, in part, by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or DARPA under a program called SyNAPSE. In a 2010 paper for IEEE Spectrum, he describes the breakthrough. Basically, a tiny constellation of processors do the work of different parts of the brain — which is sometimes called neuromorphic computation — or “computation that can be divided up between hardware that processes like the body of a neuron and hardware that processes the way dendrites and axons do.” Versace’s research shows that AIs can learn in that environment using a lot less code.”
