参考消息:步态识别技术助内地警方抓逃犯 港媒:福尔摩斯也自愧不如

核心提示:报道称,这项技术被称为步态识别,其原理是分析一个人走路时从身体轮廓到手臂摆动角度到脚尖朝内还是朝外的数以千计的特征,然后建立一个数据库。

参考消息网2月27日报道 港媒称,中国内地的人工智能(AI)初创企业所推出的软件能够识别50米以外的人——即使这个人遮挡了面部或背对摄像头,这将使其在人工智能领域取得优势。

据香港《南华早报》网站2月26日报道,从一个人的走路姿势可以看出很多东西。

中国内地的人工智能(AI)初创企业银河水滴科技称,它的软件能够识别50米以外的人——即使这个人遮挡了面部或背对摄像头。这恐怕让福尔摩斯也自愧不如。

报道称,这项技术被称为步态识别,其原理是分析一个人走路时从身体轮廓到手臂摆动角度到脚尖朝内还是朝外的数以千计的特征,然后建立一个数据库。

“人脸识别需要人对准摄像头,(我们的技术)不需要他们配合就能进行识别。”银河水滴的联合创始人兼首席执行官黄永祯在北京接受采访时说。他说,诸如此类的特点让银河水滴在抓捕逃犯方面占据优势,那些人往往会躲避监控。

黄永祯说,北京、上海和重庆警方已经进行了步态识别技术测试,公司上周正式发布了2.0版本,支持在特大城市对实时监控影像资料进行分析。

“我们目前正与警方合作开展刑事调查,比如追踪逃离抢劫现场的嫌疑人。”黄永祯接受采访时说。

报道称,除了银河水滴以外,中国内地还有多家初创企业推出创新性人工智能应用程序,比如商汤科技和旷视科技。人工智能因其有望给工业和社会带来的变革而被称为“第四次工业革命”。

一些学者认为,中国内地可以生成和挖掘海量数据,那将使其在人工智能领域取得优势。

据黄永祯称,如今,这家总部设在北京的公司已成为步态识别领域的世界第一。“我们实验室层面的准确率超过96%,银河水滴在中国和美国拥有50多项专利。”

银河水滴再次登陆央视《机智过人》 通过步态精确识别四胞胎

10月27日晚8点,《机智过人》第二季在央视1套综合频道精彩播出,全球步态识别领导者、新锐人工智能企业——银河水滴第二次登上这个人工智能现象级节目。韩雪、鲁白八十岁的步态究竟什么样?戴着面具的八位舞者中,四胞胎都分别是哪一个,能被准确识别么?这都考验着银河水滴步态识别技术一年来是否有较大进步。

在上一期,银河水滴步态识别技术技惊四座,战胜《最强大脑》记忆大师袁梦,成功从10个身高体型相似的人中识别出目标“嫌疑犯”、从21只体型毛色相似的金毛犬及剪影中识别出目标金毛犬,被图灵奖得主姚期智称赞“机智过人”。

一年来,银河水滴继续不懈努力在技术和商业化方面都取得了巨大突破:

技术方面, 银河水滴是全球唯一步态识别商业化企业,拥有全球最先进的步态识别技术和全球最大的步态数据库,跨视角步态识别精度高达94%,居全球首位。目前,银河水滴步态识别技术可对2K高清摄像机下50米外的目标人员进行360度全视角识别。

商业化方面,10月26日,银河水滴发布了多款拥有独立自主知识产权的重磅产品:通过步态识别技术在海量视频中快速进行目标人物检索和身份识别的银河水滴步态检索智能一体机“水滴神鉴”,这是全球首款步态识别商用产品;可替代工人对地铁轨道与隧道等完成智能化巡检的银河水滴轨道交通综合智能检测车“水滴智检”,这是中国首台小型化轨道交通综合智能监测车;银河水滴智能安检仪也同时发布;银河水滴还宣布,工业视觉平台“IndustryAI”的工业视觉检测算法将面向工业用户三年免费开放,大幅降低智能工业检测算法门槛,提升中国工业检测的智能化水平。

AI预测人类80岁步态 

银河水滴亮出的第一个本领是通过识别某人当下的步态特征,运用算法来“想象”出该人未来的步态。

现场,机智见证团也对银河水滴的新本领大呼惊奇,各个跃跃欲试:女神范的韩雪优雅标准地完成了步态信息的采集;科学家鲁白教授玩心大发,转着圈地“为难”水滴,但这都没难倒银河水滴,分分钟带两位机智见证团“穿越”到了自己的80岁。当看到韩雪和鲁白80岁的步态被模拟出来,现场所有人都连连称奇。

蒙面舞者中的四胞胎 他们都是哪一位

人气偶像王栎鑫担任此次对决的检验官,他用一种比步态更为激烈的身体表达方式——舞蹈来检测银河水滴的技术能力。同时来到现场与银河水滴一较高下的还有一位记忆力超群的天才少年——梅轩宇,只有19岁的他,已经荣获多项脑力比赛的冠军,同时他还自创了一套记忆法。

在首轮对战中,有八位舞者来到舞台。第一段表演完毕后,换掉其中两位舞者,新的八位舞者戴上面具进行第二段表演。表演完毕,银河水滴和梅轩宇需选出哪两位选手被替换。最终,双方都成功给出正确答案。

答案揭晓后,观众发现,其中四位来自云南曲靖的四胞胎“四小龙”,从小一起长大,一起学习拉丁舞,从样貌体态到行为举止都极为相似。据说大龙有一次顶替弟弟们给爷爷背乘法口诀,背了四遍爷爷都没分出自己检查的其实是一个人。以四胞胎的相似程度,日常生活中看脸都难以区分开,更何况还是在蒙面的舞蹈表演中。

第二轮对战中,王栎鑫亲自上阵,加码“侧面、影子、伪装”三大难点。第一段表演,所有舞者随王栎鑫一起在观众面前起舞;第二段表演,所有舞者转到幕布后进行表演,并且只展示90°侧面体态剪影,并且其中“四小龙”做了位置互换。

“四小龙”互换位置后,为了增加识别难度,还在灯光距离等方面故意做了文章,让银河水滴和梅轩宇不能从身高的指标进行判断,只能从体型和舞蹈姿态进行识别。

幕布上剪影微妙的差别,让挑战者梅轩宇头痛不已,短时间的舞蹈片段可供银河水滴采集分析的数据也太少,但银河水滴人工智能算法的联想功能在此刻发挥了巨大威力,通过自主学习功能,迅速完成了识别。最终,银河水滴和梅轩宇都对四小龙的顺序做出成功判断,让四小龙各归其位。

银河水滴的精彩表现征服了现场嘉宾,最终,撒贝宁、韩雪、鲁白三位嘉宾全票通过,支持银河水滴入选2018智能先锋。

美联社:Chinese ‘gait recognition’ tech IDs people by how they walk

  • By dake kang, associated press

BEIJING — Nov 5, 2018, 9:49 PM ET

In this Oct. 31, 2018, photo, Huang Yongzhen, CEO of Watrix, demonstrates the use of his firm’s gait recognition software at his company’s offices in Beijing. A Chinese technology startup hopes to begin selling software that recognizes people by their body shape and how they walk, enabling identification when faces are hidden from cameras. Already used by police on the streets of Beijing and Shanghai, “gait recognition” is part of a major push to develop artificial-intelligence and data-driven surveillance across China, raising concern about how far the technology will go.

Chinese authorities have begun deploying a new surveillance tool: “gait recognition” software that uses people’s body shapes and how they walk to identify them, even when their faces are hidden from cameras.

Already used by police on the streets of Beijing and Shanghai, “gait recognition” is part of a push across  China to develop artificial-intelligence and data-driven surveillance that is raising concern about how far the technology will go.

Huang Yongzhen, the CEO of Watrix, said that its system can identify people from up to 50 meters (165 feet) away, even with their back turned or face covered. This can fill a gap in facial recognition, which needs close-up, high-resolution images of a person’s face to work.

“You don’t need people’s cooperation for us to be able to recognize their identity,” Huang said in an interview in his Beijing office. “Gait analysis can’t be fooled by simply limping, walking with splayed feet or hunching over, because we’re analyzing all the features of an entire body.”

Watrix announced last month that it had raised 100 million yuan ($14.5 million) to accelerate the development and sale of its gait recognition technology, according to Chinese media reports.

Chinese police are using facial recognition to identify people in crowds and nab jaywalkers, and are developing an integrated national system of surveillance camera data. Not everyone is comfortable with gait recognition’s use.

Shi Shusi, a Chinese columnist and commentator, says it’s unsurprising that the technology is catching on in China faster than the rest of the world because of Beijing’s emphasis on social control.

“Using biometric recognition to maintain social stability and manage society is an unstoppable trend,” he said. “It’s great business.”

The technology isn’t new. Scientists in Japan, the United Kingdom and the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency have been researching gait recognition for over a decade, trying different ways to overcome skepticism that people could be recognized by the way they walk. Professors from Osaka University have worked with Japan’s National Police Agency to use gait recognition software on a pilot basis since 2013.

But few have tried to commercialize gait recognition. Israel-based FST Biometrics shut down earlier this year amid company infighting after encountering technical difficulties with its products, according to former advisory board member Gabriel Tal.

“It’s more complex than other biometrics, computationally,” said Mark Nixon, a leading expert on gait recognition at the University of Southampton in Britain. “It takes bigger computers to do gait because you need a sequence of images rather than a single image.”

Watrix’s software extracts a person’s silhouette from video and analyzes the silhouette’s movement to create a model of the way the person walks. It isn’t capable of identifying people in real-time yet. Users must upload video into the program, which takes about 10 minutes to search through an hour of video. It doesn’t require special cameras — the software can use footage from surveillance cameras to analyze gait.

Huang, a former researcher, said he left academia to co-found Watrix in 2016 after seeing how promising the technology had become. The company was incubated by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Though the software isn’t as good as facial recognition, Huang said its 94 percent accuracy rate is good enough for commercial use.

He envisions gait recognition being used alongside face-scanning software.

Beyond surveillance, Huang says gait recognition can also be used to spot people in distress such as elderly individuals who have fallen down. Nixon believes that the technology can make life safer and more convenient.

“People still don’t recognize they can be recognized by their gait, whereas everybody knows you can be recognized by your face,” Nixon said. “We believe you are totally unique in the way you walk.”

Beijing-based high-tech company released a security product on Friday using gait recognition technology to search for targets, which is likely to assist China’s public security department in identifying suspects.

Developed by WATRIX, this product, called “Shuidi Shenjian” can target suspects by monitoring their posture as the suspects walk from a distance of up to 50 meters.

Different from facial recognition, the gait recognition technology is more flexible. It is capable of identifying targets from any angle regardless of if they cover their faces or wear different clothes or walk outside at night, without suspects being aware, Huang Yongzhen, CEO of the WATRIX, told the Global Times on Friday.

Huang said that the company had inked deals with public security departments in Beijing’s Fengtai district and Shanghai. The public security department in Xinjiang also expressed interest in the security product.

The portable machine, weighing about 15 kilograms, can replace manual workers by quickly spotting suspects while they are walking. Users need to upload videos onto the machine first and offer the machine an example video of the target, then the machine can complete a search through one hour of video in 10 minutes. Its accuracy is about 94 percent.

But Huang said the technology still cannot detect targets in real-time videos, which is the next step of their research.

At present, the product has been piloted in the public security system for more than 1,000 hours, being used in the detection of more than 20 cases. It had retrieved 2,000G of public security videos so far.

The gait recognition technology can also be applied in the medical field by allowing medical personnel to examine whether a patient has fallen down and it can also be applied in oil fields to seek out intruders, as well as being used in designing smart home furniture, Huang noted.

Gait tech gaining traction

Chinese computer vision startup Watrix recently unveiled its gait recognition product which will enable security departments to quickly search and recognize identities, making it one of the world’s first commercialized products for gait recognition.

Gait recognition is a technique that integrates computer vision, pattern recognition and video processing to identify people by analyzing their body shape and walking posture.

The latest product is highly effective when targets walk from a long distance or in weak light, cover their faces or wear different clothes, and will be a great supplement to current computer vision products.

“The product will greatly improve efficiency in security-related areas including police, customs and ports as it is able to scan a one-hour video and identify objects within 10 minutes, with the accuracy rate reaching 94 percent,” said Huang Yongzhen, CEO of Watrix.

It has been tested by public security officials for more than 1,000 hours and has been involved in the detection of more than 20 cases.

Huang disclosed that the company has already obtained intent orders totaling more than 135 million yuan ($19 million).

Watrix, which was founded in 2016, was incubated by the Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The startup, focusing on computer vision, can provide solutions for sectors including security, transportation and manufacturing.

It raised 100 million yuan in its initial round of fundraising earlier this month, with Shenzhen Hang Bong Investment and Development Co Ltd and Hua He Capital leading the investment.

“The technology has been commercialized in an array of fields including safety and security, as well as transportation. It is a promising market that is able to nurture companies valued at some 10 billion yuan or even 100 billion yuan,” said Zhou Shuhua, founding partner of Hua He Capital.

The startup also launched an intelligent searching machine to help railway staff detect flaws in railways as well as other abnormalities, which can help reduce maintenance costs by around 60 million yuan from each machine.
