MIT Computer Vision Technology Allows Cars to See Around Corners

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have devised a computer vision system that monitors subtle shadows to detect objects that are hidden from view. The CornerCameras system from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) observes light reflections to perceive unseen people or things. The computer vision system uses these reflections to estimate the…


Taking on Terrorism with Face Recognition

Following a surge in terrorist incidents, Turkish defense contractor HAVELSAN is preparing to introduce an artificial intelligence-based security system that uses face recognition to identify suspects before they commit violent acts. The system, called ASTARUS, is designed to recognize faces and license plates, according to the Daily Sabah. ASTARUS can scan all photos and personal…
