One of the directions of computer vision development is face recognition technology. Currently, there is a huge variety of facial recognition systems, ranging from the face localization technology in smartphones to complex systems that can find a person in a crowd. In this article we will discuss the principles on which modern facial recognition systems are based.Read more
The EU approved amendments to Article 13 of the Copyright Directive. How to prepare and not to drown in the claims?
On April 17, 2019, the European Parliament adopted amendments to Article 13 of the Copyright Directive. Early in the discussion stage, this bill has caused many public disputes.

Movies can have similar properties to music. For example, you might remember some footage from the movie you saw when you were a child, and want to find it to refresh your memories. Or you just want to find out the title of the movie with your favourite actor.Read more
The solution to this problem came to me during my work on the game called Soldiers: Heroes of World War II. I developed a movement system for tanks and other vehicles for this game.
As soon as we started providing our video recognition system to customers, it became necessary to monitor its stability. Without seeing the system parameters, it can be difficult to understand what is happening, and we had to make assumptions about the nature of the failure guided only by external signs. This was inconvenient and didn’t allow us to understand the cause of the problem and be able to respond to it fast enough. Therefore, we decided to install a monitoring system.
A good idea is not enough for a startup to succeed. It is necessary to have a good understanding of your goals for the business as well as the methods by which they can be in order to get onto the market.
In the beginning of April 2019, we completely overhauled the InvariMatch interface, making it more convenient.
At the moment, self-driving cars can help drivers, but they only reach the third level of autonomy at best. That is why the Tesla manual states that a person has to keep their hands on the wheel while driving, so that they can take control of the car if necessary. The autonomous driving technology is not reliable enough as of now, and a failure in one of the cars subsystem may lead to an accident. But, even at this stage, the autopilot is able to predict and handle a number of dangerous situations much better than a person would.
People have been dreaming about autonomous vehicles long before the car was even invented. Only a few decades after Henry Ford had started the mass production of low-cost cars, people wanted more once again.
