TOMSK, Jan 12 –
RIA Tomsk. Tomsk State University (TSU)
received two patents for programs that allow recognizing the faces of people in
a moving stream and in a static state; the software products of Tomsk
scientists are already being used in one of the largest seaports in Vietnam,
the press service of the university reports.
It is clarified
that the senior engineer of the educational Laboratory for Measurement Methods
of the Faculty of Innovative Technologies (FIT) Semyon Klestov, postgraduate
student of the FIT from Vietnam Nguyen The Cuong and his supervisor, professor
of TSU Vladimir Syryamkin, worked on the development of IT products.
received two patents for programs designed to recognize people in a video
stream and in a static state. Software products are already used in the
Republic of Vietnam to ensure order and safety of people in public places and
in one of the country's largest seaports – Hai Phong. In the near future
Vietnam Maritime University will be able to use the programs", – is said
in the statement.
It is noted that
Vietnam has a high average population density – about 300 people per square
kilometer, while in Russia it is more than 30 times less. The program of TSU
scientists, which identifies people in motion, quickly and accurately distinguishes
human faces of different races with an accuracy of at least 90%, including at
dusk and in the rain. The second program reveals the characteristic features of
a person in a static state – dimensions, appearance, etc.
programs are based on vision systems and neural network algorithms, the
creation and development of which is being carried out by the FIT TSU. These
tools are used by us in robotics and mechatronics, in particular, they help
robots and drones to determine the terrain and independently build a
route", – Syryamkin is quoted.

It is added that
TSU not only transfers technologies to other countries, but also trains
specialists capable of accompanying new developments. For example, a student
from Vietnam Bui Duc H. Huang, who will return to his home country after
graduation and will implement the software at new facilities, is currently
studying at the FIT TSU undergraduate program.
Earlier it was
reported that TSU has established active interaction with the countries of
Southeast Asia. According to the press service of the university, TSU recently
received a patent for a software product created by order of the government of
Laos. This software is used for electronic document management.
