Abstract
This Phase II effort will expand the Attribute-based advanced face technology to TRL4 or more, to improve the user interfaces issues for this novel technology and to advance the fundamental understanding of Attributes and how they are efficiently computed and their stability properties. It will expand beyond traditional relational DB to a distributed model to support 10M to 100M faces. It will evaluate designs for potential use on a mobile/phone platform. It will expand the meta-recognition fusion elements for integration of attribute-based technology with existing contextual/intelligence data-sources. The effort includes options for extensions to both video-based input and smart-phones as well as integration with operational programs and a novel"Be on the Lookout"application.
