Asilla, inc. (Head office: Machida-shi, Tokyo, CEO: Daisuke Kimura) has concluded a joint research agreement on "multi-camera tracking" with Professor Koichi Shinoda of Tokyo Institute of Technology (address: Meguro-ku, Tokyo).
◆ Background of the joint research
We are a company that develops video analysis AI, focusing on behavior recognition AI. We are also developing a multi-camera tracking algorithm that uses our knowledge of behavior recognition technology to determine and track the identity of a person based on their characteristic behavior. The algorithm is expected to be used in a variety of applications, including marketing and crime prevention for large-scale commercial facilities, and in the context of smart cities, for searching for missing persons and alerting people to malicious callers in downtown areas. In the context of smart cities, it is expected to be used for various purposes such as searching for missing persons and alerting people to malicious calls in downtown areas. In this joint research, we aim to further promote the research and development of this algorithm by combining our behavior recognition technology with Professor Shinoda's knowledge.
◆ Comment by Professor Koichi Shinoda
Deep learning has led to the rapid development of technologies such as image recognition and speech recognition.
However, human behavior is complex, and its accurate recognition is difficult. Through joint research with Asilla, we aim to develop high performance technology that is both academically unique and useful to society.
◆ Comment by Mr. Wakasa, Executive Officer, Asilla Inc.
Multi-camera tracking is made possible by our original posture estimation technology "AsillaPose", and its greatest feature is that it is not affected much by changes in appearance due to changes in clothing, masks, etc. It is expected to be used in various situations such as marketing and crime prevention. Through joint research with Professor Shinoda, we aim to improve the accuracy and promote the social implementation of this technology.
