Face recognition to boost surveillance

facerecog_kartook

 

The US government is making progress on developing a surveillance system that would pair computers with video cameras to scan crowds and automatically identify people by their faces, according to newly disclosed documents and interviews with researchers working on the project.
The Department of Homeland Security tested a crowd-scanning project called the Biometric Optical Surveillance System – or BOSS – last fall after two years of government-financed development. Although the system is not ready for use, researchers say they are making significant advances. That alarms privacy advocates, who say that now is the time for the government to establish oversight rules and limits on how it will someday be used.
There have been stabs for over a decade at building a system that would help match faces in a crowd with names on a watch list – whether in searching for terrorism suspects at high-profile events like a presidential inaugural parade, looking for criminal fugitives in places like Times Square or identifying card cheats in casinos.
The automated matching of closeup photographs has improved greatly in recent years, and companies like  Facebook  have experimented with it using still pictures.
But even with advances in computer power, the technical hurdles involving crowd scans from a distance have proved to be far more challenging . Despite occasional much-hyped tests, including one as far back as the 2001 Super Bowl, technical specialists say crowd scanning is still too slow and unreliable.
The release of the documents about the government’s efforts to overcome those challenges comes amid a surge of interest in surveillance matters inspired by the leaks by Edward J  Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor. Interest in video surveillance was also fuelled by the attack on the Boston Marathon, where suspects were identified by officials looking through camera footage.

Microsoft buys Nokia for $7.2 billion

nokia-Kartook

Microsoft’s acquisition of handset major Nokia’s phone division has drawn a lot of interest in the tech and business world. Will beleaguered Nokia be better able to succeed at what it could not as a standalone player? Will Microsoft be able to rewrite its smartphone story now & compete better with Apple and Google? These are the questions only time can answer. But the two are definitely expected to derive better synergies with the merger.

WhatsApp gets voice messaging feature

whatisapp_kartook

 

The popular messaging app  WhatsApp  has launched voice massaging, a new feature that allows users to record and send audio messages on their smartphones.

Said to be a brainchild of the US-based company’s co-founder and CEO Jan Koum, the new feature allows users to just hold to record a message and release to send it.

There is also a blue blinker notification that lets users know when the message is recieved.

In case the user decides not to send the message, a swipe to the left and the recording is deleted. All this is built into a single tap.

There is also no timelength limit for the recorded messages. Also, the volume automatically switches from speaker when held at arm’s length to soft when held next to an ear.

WhatsApp also announced that it now has 300 million global monthly active users, surpassing 20 million monthly active users in four countries: Germany, Spain, Mexico and India.

With the introduction of voice messaging feature, the company hopes further strengthen its user base globally.

Though WhatsApp charges $0.99 from its users after one year, it has never disclosed the percentage of its paid users.

Facebook changes your News Feed again

Facebook

 

Facebook’s quest to be a personalized newspaper for the internet age continued on Tuesday with tweaks aimed at making sure members spy hot stories from their friends.

Changes to the leading social network’s formula for figuring out which posts will be of interest included “bumping” up potentially intriguing stories that went unnoticed during prior visits to Facebook.

“It is hard for users to get back to old things; you have to scroll through things you have already seen,”  Facebook News Feed  team engineeringLars Backstrom  said while discussing the latest changes.

“We wanted to make it so people weren’t missing important stories that didn’t make top slots but were just below the fold.”

Signals weighed in the machine learning algorithm were modified to bump-up a story considered more interesting than fresher material that formerly got priority simply for being newer.

“We tweaked the model,” Backstrom said, noting that about 30,000 signals are balanced in the algorithm.

“Instead of just taking the new stories, we would take all stories that were new to you, that you haven’t seen, even if it isn’t the freshest.”

A test of the change showed that the number of stories people read in News Feeds rose to 70% from 57% with “bumping,” according to Facebook.

“Story Bumping is going to be a really nice tool for people if they… are sitting with a  Facebookaccount and have run out of things to look at,” said Facebook vice president of product Chris Cox. “It will bump up new stuff.”

News Feeds were also modified to take into account the “last actor” a member interacted with and then give that friend’s posts temporary priority since they seem to be up to something interesting.

“We wanted to capture your current state of mind as you were using Facebook,” Backstrom said.

“A lot of signals are long term, such as the relationship with each friend; we wanted a real time factor.”

Facebook’s ranking software assigns numerical scores to the roughly 1,500 stories typically eligible for delivery to a member’s News Feed and displays the top 300.

Powerful factors for ranking are relationships, along with how often a member comments, shares, “likes,” or otherwise acts on posts of friends. Hiding posts sinks content from that person in News Feed rankings.

“Our goal is to create the best personalized newspaper for each of our readers,” Backstrom said.

Facebook engineers are experimenting with ways for News Feeds to better handle chronological posts, such as a friend firing off play-by-play updates from a sporting event.

Backstrom’s team meets each Tuesday to brainstorm ways to improve the Facebook News Feed, with worthwhile ideas tested internally among workers or with a tiny fraction of the social network’s more than one billion members.

“It starts with intuition and then that gets written into code as a feature,” said Cox. “Then we look at interactions.”

Ads displayed as promoted posts in News Feeds are handled separately from content generated by people’s friends or family members at Facebook, according to the ranking team.

“We figure out the most relevant News Feed with the organic content, and then, as a newspaper or television programme might do, we create advertising slots,” said Facebook product manager Will Cathcart.

Backstrom compared the job of ranking News Feed posts to the challenge faced by internet search engines Google or Bing when it comes to quickly determining optimal results for queries.

“Facebook is one of the only places where you have a problem on the same scale as what Google or Bing is doing but you have to use different techniques because of the personal aspects of it,” Backstrom said.

‘Solar shirt‘ to charge your Gadgets !!!!

 

solar-power-shirt-for-men_kartook

A city-based scientist has come up with a concept of a ” solar summer shirt” which will come with with inbuilt solar cells and fans to keep the wearer cool during hot days.

“We are trying to develop technology to fix small solar cells either into the fibre of a shirt or in its pocket,” said Santipada GonChaudhury, a specialist in photovoltaic system engineering and design.

GonChoudhury says the shirt could produce around 400 watts of energy with the help of solar cells whose size will vary from 2.5 inches to 3 inches.

He said the shirt would store enough power to charge cellphones, tablets or other digital devices.

Explaining the concept, the scientist said the shirt will have two layers, one of which will have two to four small “fans” which will work on solar energy. The size of these miniature fans will be smaller than those found inside a computer.

“Suppose a person is 5.5 feet tall. Then the amount of sun rays that fall on every square feet of his body is sufficient to create 400 watts of energy by using solar cells – enough to charge mobiles, tablets, ipods etc,” GonChoudhury told PTI.

The Ashden award winner, who teaches at the Bengal Engineering and Science University, has submitted the research proposal to the Science and Technology Department of the central government.
