Disguised Face Identification Research - Amarjot Singh

Amarjot has developed the next generation face recognition system that is able to identify faces covered with disguises such as scarfs, beards, caps, and glasses. Individuals on the criminal databases around the world often disguise their faces with hats and beards to avoid identification by face recognition systems. This system will help to tackle the global security challenges by identifying masked criminals that pose serious real-world threats, in turn, making society more secure.
