Nowadays, different audience measurement systems become more and more popular. They are used in active advertising, for gathering statistics, etc. One of the key features of these smart systems is attention detection. For advertisers, for instance, it seems very important to know, how much attention commercial attracts. In this article, I will describe attention detector module, used in our Audience Measurement system.
Here you can find a demo of the barcode detection and recognition routine. The current version is set up to detect a barcode labels mostly oriented horizontally and vertically. The routine processes each frame of the video stream and scans it trying to detect a barcode starting position, relying on the appearance specific of the barcode labels. As long as a potential starting position detected the routine applies the set of the image filters to increase the readability of the scanned window. Then recognition algorithm tries both to read and validate the barcode label starting from the detected point. You may see for yourself that such combination of detection and recognition algorithms works pretty well.
This demo works with UPC-A and EAN-13 barcode types.
In this post we present a video demo of the gender classifier. This classifier is adapted for frontal- and near to frontal-oriented faces. It is capable to provide the real-time gender recognition with the invariance to complicated lighting conditions. The foundation of the implemented method is an AdaBoost powered extraction of the gender-descriptive features along with the further separation of male / female subsets for learning of the decision-making routine.
The classifier works in the conjunction with face-detector and tries to classify all found faces on the each frame. The achieved accuracy of correct classification is 90-92%, though on small faces (less then 32×32 pixels) returned by face-detector the accuracy of gender recognition could reduce to 80-88%.
