AIH Technology

Protecting privacy and fighting COVID-19 pandemic are not mutually exclusive

AIH Technology has joined with Federal and Provincial Governments, researchers and non-profit organizations on our shared mission to address the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have partnered with the University of Waterloo to develop a computer vision-guided high-throughput fever screening technology to help minimize the risks of resurgence of COVID-19. We look forward to offering our available technology stack to support the developments of solutions to help contain the damaging effect of COVID-19 on our communities.

Precision Regulation for facial recognition, not blanket-ban

With the recent breakthroughs in deep learning and computer vision, we are beginning to see Artificial Intelligence being used in applications that have once existed only in science-fiction settings. Our AI computer vision algorithm has been deployed in seniors homes to prevent seniors living with dementia from going missing; our advanced computer vision algorithm. . .

Understanding of the legitimate concerns for AI is the key

Yet, we, collectively as a society, need to be mindful about how advanced technologies are applied appropriately. Specifically, we must prevent the misuse and abuse of advanced technologies like AI.

Facts on AIH and facial recognition

Facial recognition can be used ethically… Here is what we are doing:

In light of the recent news reports on Clearview AI and the practice of unauthorized scraping of social media contents, I’d like to clear the facts about AIH and our application of facial recognition technology.

AIH does not source, store, and make use of any public data, or any data that infringe on individual privacy rights, for any purpose. AIH is committed to support ethical applications of facial recognition.

Artificial Intelligence Computer Vision in Senior Care: AI Wandering Prevention


More than half a million Canadians are currently living with dementia, and there are 25,000 new cases of dementia diagnosed every year. It is estimated that six in ten people living with dementia will wander away at some point and possibly become lost. Missing incidents can be life-threatening and even fatal, particularly in the cold Canadian winter. A recent study by Frances et al. . .

“Health care providers in community setting and care facilities usually need to take care of a group of persons living with dementia, and may not be able to monitor the location of all of them at all times. . .

Finding long-term missing persons: how AI computer vision can help


The challenges in identifying long-term missing persons

Statistics from Canadian Centre for Child Protection indicate that “more than 50,000 children are reported missing to police each year. While most are located within a short period of time, some become long-term missing child cases.”

One of the main difficulties in finding long-term missing persons, especially children and victims of human trafficking, is due to the change in facial characteristics (i.e. age progression) that may become unrecognizable even to the missing persons’ own families. . .
