Artificial Intelligence for Good: Thorn’s ChildFinder Technology

Developed by Thorn, ChildFinder uses AI to locate and identify the faces of missing children from among a sea of faces – helping searchers find them faster than ever. The AI system is trained to recognize when a pair of images represents the same child, regardless of the child’s age at the time each photo was taken. It even allows for differences in clothing, hair style, makeup and background when matching images. With the help of AI, a team can quickly scan thousands of images and identify the most likely matches, turning an almost impossible task into a much simpler one. (Credit: Intel Corporation)
