A exploration crew from China’s Northwest University is using synthetic intelligence (AI) and other new systems to develop a facial recognition technologies for monkey to identify hundreds of Sichuan golden snub-nosed monkeys in the Qinling Mountain in Shaanxi Province.

Identical to the recent facial recognition engineering, the technological innovation for monkey can extract the facial element facts of the monkey to establish the identification database of the unique monkey in Qinling Mountains, the Xinhua Information Agency claimed.

“When monkey facial recognition technological innovation is completely created, we can combine the know-how into an infrared digital camera sets in the mountains. The technique will routinely understand the monkeys, name them and review their behavior,” reported Zhang He, a member of the Northwest University exploration workforce.

At current, the monkey facial recognition technology is in the experimental stage of promotion and can recognize about 200 golden monkeys in the Qinling Mountain. 

“For each snub-nosed monkey, we acquired among 700 to 800 graphic samples, and the success price of recognition was 94 %,” Zhang extra.

In contrast with facial recognition for human beings, monkey facial recognition know-how is diverse in that the face of golden monkey is hairier, building the texture functions far more elaborate, which places higher needs on the deep mastering ability of the recognition procedure.

“The wild natural environment is difficult, and golden monkeys do not cooperate with the approach in the same way humans do. It is tricky to seize significant-good quality pics and films, which are crucial to improve the recognition level. Our purpose is to efficiently recognize just about every monkey captured in the digital camera,” Li Baoguo, leader of the investigation group, claimed.

At the moment, there are about 4,000 golden snub-nosed monkeys dwelling in the Qinling Mountain, which belong to the independent subspecies of Sichuan golden snub-nosed monkeys. They are normal forest arboreal animals, inhabiting forests at an altitude of 1,500 meters to 3,300 meters all the year round.
