AI for video analytics has taken remarkable strides by introducing efficient and advanced solutions that have the potential to replace traditional biometric systems, especially for employee attendance that often proves to be a tedious task for large-scale enterprises.
The technology was commonly used by various critical sectors for the facial recognition of their employees or finger punch before Covid-19 struck to disrupt the process though customized applications. But given the pandemic, finger punch is been avoided largely and with face masks becoming a norm, most of the applications have fallen short to meet the smooth processing of biometric entries by large workforce working remotely.
The available Facial Identification Framework for obtaining video analytics is making it difficult to complete the verification process given the face mask usage, for drawing the facial specifications which include jaw line, nose, lips, etc. ACSG Corp, working in the domain of critical infrastructure protection identified the gap faced by the critical organizations and has developed a software framework to bridge the gap.
The framework is capable of extracting video analytics despite the face mask usage. It is one of the few companies globally that can verify the facial specifications with mask on. The analytics are obtained by studying the face alignment, head pose estimation, face swapping, blink detection and other facial attributes. This framework is built on deep neural networks and can detect facial landmarks on real-time basis.
The significance of this technology for resource management across critical infrastructure cannot be undermined. Many companies are focusing on technology-driven operations, especially amidst the pandemic for quick identification, maintaining social distancing. Such a technology is highly futuristic as it addresses various post pandemic video analytics challenges.
This technology will also help avoid spread of contact-induced infections, since attendance is a major part of the daily operations conducted by any enterprise. Identification through an emerging technology can help the organizations marshal their workforce without major obstructions with the culture of remote work becoming prominent.
There have been several foundational changes in the delivery patterns of critical infrastructure since the pandemic struck, and the challenge of workforce management is one of its kind. The noteworthy point is that the new-age critical sector organizations cannot just depend on AI for meeting their evolving requirements, but they need enhanced usage of AI-based technologies for smoothly supporting national productivity post pandemic. This is certainly where companies like ACSG Corp can play a major role by providing innovative solutions in the long run.
