Artificial intelligence helps the Chinese look for the missing dog (4 photos)

Megvii, known in China for its advanced developments in the field of tracking people, has created an interesting application that is gaining more and more popularity in the Middle Kingdom. It helps in the search for missing dogs and not very responsible owners of the pets found in the control of stray animals. The project is based on the uniqueness of the dog’s nose pattern (the same as that of the human fingerprint). Using artificial intelligence, Chinese developers managed to organize a system that recognizes dogs from photographs. In order to add a discovered pet to the database, its face is photographed several times from different angles. The received data is compared by the application with a rather large database. At the exit, either the owner’s contact information is found, or the next \ The authors of the project advise not to postpone the registration of their pets – it is impossible to predict when they will be lost. And so you can increase the chances of finding a pet. At the moment, more than 15,000 dogs have already been added to the application, in addition, new ones are constantly being added. The Chinese government is already collaborating with Megvii. This is done in order to control the irresponsible owners. Since last year, a law has been enacted in the Celestial Empire that prohibits dog walking in the city without a leash. Tracking intruders will now be easier.
