The Moscow City Court and IT company CROC have successfully piloted a facial recognition system — developed in Russia and powered by neural networks — during an online court session held as a video conference. CROC’s solution helps overcome isolation restrictions and gather people in an online courtroom remotely.
Taking care of transitioning to remote work was a complete surprise for some companies. In an interview for TAdviser, Valentin Gubarev, Director of Computer Systems Department at CROC, has shared his company’s experience in adjusting to working from home and associated risks and benefits.
Today, hardly anybody questions the need for digital transformation of modern business. Alina Veselova, Senior Business Transformation Consultant, IT company CROC, explains how companies can evolve digitally by employing design thinking and whether engaging external partners for this may pay off.
During the recent quarantine, we have gradually grown to accept mask usage and become accustomed to the idea of an always-covered face. However, the face recognition problem still remains unsolved. Russian companies such as CROC are also working on this problem. Tatiana Pavlova, a video analytics project manager, said that 30% of the face surface is enough for the system to do the job.
