This is a project for CHARITY purposes. This project will make use of the facial recognition technology to encourage people to assist in looking for kidnapped/captured children. With smartphones continue to gain popularity, Apps of various uses are installed on smartphones. If people use an App to take pictures of people who are suspected to be kidnapped (young beggars and/or prostitutes or a new child in the neighbour’s house) and send the pictures to a database at which the photos are compared with those who are reported lost or kidnapped by way of facial recognition technology, those who are interested parties (e.g parents of the lost children or the police) (“IPs”) will be provided with information (dates, times and GPS coordinates) so that they may track down the potential candidates. Since the IPs are the most interested parties to get information about their lost relatives, they may be keen enough to take the next step and track down the potential candidates and this indirectly increases the chances that the kidnapped children/women may be found.
Since this project involves a good understanding and application of facial recognition algorithm and technology, only those who are familiar with this technology should bid. Otherwise it will be a long learning process.
