Principal Investigator:

  • Professor Andrzej Pacut.

The institutions performing the project:

  • Warsaw University of Technology – Project Leader;
  • Research and Academic Computer Network;
  • Stanislaw Staszic AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow;
  • Polish Platform for Homeland Security Association.

Goal of the project:

The main goal of the project was to develop software that would support officers of the police and other uniformed services in identification of persons based on images recorded in the form of photographs and video materials.

Description of the project:

The final version of the BIOWIZ system has functionalities that enable, among others, detection of faces and silhouettes on indicated photographs and video materials and to create biometric profiles and to search for them in multimedia and data sets (e.g. the National Police Information System). The system also helps analyzing multimedia materials. All functions of the program have been developed based on the expectations and needs of the final users, such as representatives of agencies in charge of security who work with video materials and photographs on a daily basis.
