[News] New AI Smartphone System Can Identify Fake Products!

Hello Mi Fans,
Artificial intelligence(AI) algorithm that allows your Smartphone to differentiate between genuine and counterfeit versions of the same product has been developed by a team of Indian-origin researchers in the US.

What is Artificial intelligence (AI)?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is an area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. Some of the activities computers with artificial intelligence are designed for include:

  • Speech recognition
  • Learning
  • Planning
  • Problem solving

Artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science that aims to create intelligent machines. It has become an essential part of the technology industry.

What Researchers say?
Researchers at New York University (NYU) in the US noted that fake goods represent a massive worldwide problem with nearly every high-valued physical object or product directly affected by this issue. Some reports indicate counterfeit trafficking represents seven per cent of the world's trade today, researchers said.

The Artificial Intelligence algorithms then analyse the images to determine authenticity and provide results in real-time.

While other counterfeit-detection methods exist, these are invasive and run the risk of damaging the products under examination. The new method, by contrast, provides a non-intrusive solution to easily distinguish authentic versions of the product created by the original manufacturer and fake versions of the product made by counterfeiters. It does so by deploying a data set of three million images across various objects and materials such as fabrics, leather, pills, electronics, toys, and shoes.

The classification accuracy is more than 98 per cent, and we show how our system works with a cell phone to verify the authenticity of everyday objects.

The principle of our system stems from the idea that microscopic characteristics in a genuine product or a class of products - corresponding to the same larger product line - exhibit inherent similarities that can be used to distinguish these products from their corresponding counterfeit versions.

The  Entropy method, by contrast, provides a non-intrusive solution to easily distinguish authentic versions of the product produced by the original manufacturer and fake versions of the product produced by counterfeiters.
