Criminals who think they are safe working under the cover of darkness now have more to fear then just batman now that Saquib Sarfraz and Rainer Stiefelhagen are on the case. Saquib Sarfraz and Rainer Stiefelhagen are two Computer scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology what have created a tool that uses thermal signature to create infrared images to be matched to a normal photo.

While we all want to look to the future and have all the fancy gadget from our favorite action movie the technology have not been perfected yet. The current success rate of the tool is at 80% and Dr. Sarfraz said that “more training data and a more powerful architecture could produce better results”.

There are currently no plans to currently market the tool. Through with a lower error rate it could be a real game changer for matching criminals in low lit areas to security photos.

Don’t miss a minute of your opinion

Do you think that police should be able to use such a tool in court for identifying a criminal?
