The team at MODRON have been working on solving an important problem with a very interesting approach.
We have come across a number of scenarios where certain participants in a dispute resolution process would have a need to hide the detail of their room or space while on a video call. In response to this we have just released a new feature we are calling Privacy Blur.
This new feature enables participants on a video call to instantly blur their background in real time. Importantly this is achieved through your Spaces account without having to install anything on your device.
To achieve Privacy Blur we needed to be able to reliably detect faces and facial features in real time. Using a variety of proprietary data models, and also advanced machine learning in 3D we are able to provide extremely fast and precise face detection, fast and robust eye, nose and chin detection in real time during Space Calls.
Our Privacy Blur feature is able to anonymously track any face under almost light conditions from any angle, even when the head is turned 180 degrees either side. This allows us to then recognise which part of the video image is the background that should be blurred leaving the persons head unchanged and visible. This process occurs continuously for every frame of the video call.
We are only able to achieve these results by leveraging the power of machine learning. After analysing countless images of people in different rooms the system can be guided to use this data to become increasingly effective and accurate at recognising the faces of people from the rest of a video image in almost any scenario. Pretty cool and exciting stuff I think!
This is just one of the projects we are working on that leverages the power of machine learning and artifical intelligence. Stay tuned for more exciting releases and updates just around the corner from MODRON.
