Artificial Intelligence helps in finding missing children in China

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.
