The MMC Griffin Tech program is an exciting, new pilot program being launched to give our dedicated faculty a new and improved resource for their everyday technological needs. Staffed by professionally-minded students, the Griffin Tech program will strive not only to provide an enhanced technology resource to faculty, but will serve as a training ground for students with technology-driven experience and aspirations. Any full or part-time MMC faculty member may request a project for the review of the Griffin Tech team. Please note: although the student GTs should be considered consummate professionals, they are only permitted to work on projects during their designated working hours.
A facial recognition system is a technology capable of identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source. There are multiple methods in which facial recognition systems work, but in general, they work by comparing selected facial features from given image with faces within a database. It is also described as a Biometric Artificial Intelligence based application that can uniquely identify a person by analysing patterns based on the person's facial textures and shape. While initially a form of computer application , it has seen wider uses in recent times on mobile platforms and in other forms of technology, such as robotics. It is typically used as access control in security systems and can be compared to other biometrics such as fingerprint or eye iris recognition systems. During and , Bledsoe, along with Helen Chan and Charles Bisson, worked on using the computer to recognize human faces Bledsoe a, b; Bledsoe and Chan He was proud of this work, but because the funding was provided by an unnamed intelligence agency that did not allow much publicity, little of the work was published.
By Timothy Revell. What can your face say about you? Face recognition technology can pick up on things like your age, gender and maybe even your mood. They are claiming to have developed a system that, when shown a series of faces it has never encountered before, can pick out the ones belonging to convicted criminals. But other researchers have criticised the results, and say the work raises ethical questions over what face recognition technology can and should be used to detect.
