AI senses people through walls

Wireless smart-home system, uses Artificial Intelligence to sense people through walls.

Using wireless signals, RF-Pose could serve as a health care system to monitor patients’ movements from the other side of a wall.

X-ray vision has long seemed like a far-fetched sci-fi fantasy, but over the last decade a team led by Professor Dina Katabi from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has continually gotten us closer to seeing through walls.

Their latest project, “RF-Pose,” uses artificial intelligence (AI) to teach wireless devices to sense people’s postures and movement, even from the other side of a wall.

The researchers use a neural network to analyze radio signals that bounce off people’s bodies, and can then create a dynamic stick figure that walks, stops, sits, and moves its limbs as the person performs those actions.

    Of course AI is going to change how things work but never knew till this extent and so fast. This is really Interesting technology to be updated with.
