Smile! You are on Robot Overlord TV!

Start Time: Friday, July 20, 2018 2:45 PM
I want to show off how easy it is to use face recognition technology. I will show how to integrate this with existing applications and a number of use cases that make sense right now. During the presentation I ask for volunteers to take pictures, train up my model, and have my robot identify them.

Our robot overlords are coming closer to reality every day! You don’t want to be left out in the cold not knowing how to appease them! One of the most identifying features of us humans is our face. While we take it for granted being able to recognize our friends, the coming overlords have only started to be able to recognize humans, be it friend or foe. Come to my talk and we will explore the current state of this technology. I will have examples of not only detecting a person’s face, but also identifying them as friend or foe. As with all my talks, you will see that using face detection and identification is not only accessible, but well within the capabilities of us mere humans. Come ready to have your picture taken(optional) and hopefully the robot overlords will accept you into the fold!
