AMSTERDAM, December 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

At Today's Inauguration Speech, AI Professor

Cees Snoek Gives Preview of First-Ever Body Language Recognition Software

During his inauguration address on Video Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam, today, Prof. Cees Snoek

gives a preview of the world's first-ever body language recognition software. The software is developed at Kepler Vision Technologies (www.keplervision.eu ), a university spin-off company. The software "looks" into videos and recognizes a human's body language, body poses and actions. Examples are if a patient drinks enough, got dressed, gets upset, or is lying on the couch versus lying on the floor. The software is developed in response to our ageing population, our desire to live independent as long as possible, all under the constraints of a shrinking care givers workforce. The official software launch is January 8-11, 2019 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (Hall G, Booth 51726, Eureka Park).

  • "Video intelligence is a rapidly evolving field that operates at the cross-roads of computer vision, deep learning and artificial intelligence. In the not so far away future, video intelligence will automatically interpret any video stream that is recorded, much better and much faster than humans do." says Cees Snoek, professor of Intelligent Sensory Information Systems at the University of Amsterdam's Faculty of Science.
  • "There are numerous applications where this completely new technology will have impact, ranging from security to retail." says Dr. Harro Stokman, Kepler's CEO. "However, we focus on the people who need attention and support the most: our grandparents living at elderly care centers or living all alone."
