+ - Carnegie Mellon video net brings Harry Potter Marauder's Map to life->

Submitted by coondoggie
coondoggie (973519) writes "A network of video cameras melded a unique algorithm let scientists with the Carnegie Mellon University track the locations of multiple individuals in complex, indoor setting — just like Harry Potter's Marauder's Map. The Carnegie Mellon system was able to automatically follow the movements of 13 people within a nursing home, even though individuals sometimes slipped out of view of the cameras and researchers said they made use of multiple cues from the video feed: apparel color, person detection, trajectory and, perhaps most significantly, facial recognition, according to university researchers."
