Over 20,000 children go missing each year in China
Abducted not for ransom but sold into slave labour, prostitution, or a life on the streets as beggars.
For the parents, hope to find their children in a country so big, is small.
But artificial intelligence is helping families reunite.
All thanks to the latest cross-age facial recognition technology from Chinese tech giant Baidu.
Baidu and Baby Back Home, a group dedicated to reconnecting lost children with their parents,
helps families by publishing missing profiles on their website.

Baidu offered Baby Back Home its new cross-age facial recognition technology,
which is 99.77 percent accurate, according to the company.
Their new app allowed people to upload photos of children,
which could be cross-referenced with a missing persons database.
If there is a match, the family is alerted.
Innovative way to use Artificial Intelligence to improve people’s live.
