(Presentation and Q&A by Mr Guy Ron)


While Facial Recognition and Video Analytics works perfectly well in fully controlled environments and setups (i.e. immigration counters), the majority of the real-life business use cases in the public and private sectors involves fully uncontrolled environments, different weather conditions, crowded scenes, uncooperative and in-motion subjects, and in recent cases mobile/wearable cameras which are in motion as well. During the session, we will explore innovative methods for achieving high accuracy detections in fully uncontrolled environments using cutting-edge computer vision and ML technologies
