This AI can search for people by height, gender, and clothing in surveillance videos

A team of AI researchers from India developed a tool to search for people in surveillance footage by height, clothing color, and gender. It’s like a search engine that can find people in a video.

The scientists used deep learning to train a convolutional neural network how to recognize certain human features, called soft biometrics, using computer vision. Basically, you can tell this AI some details about the person you’re looking for and it’ll scour whatever video you give it.
