The ML6 team of machine learning and artificial intelligence experts developed a free AI application that detects visitors and employees who are not wearing face masks. The app is a real asset to retailers and companies now that masks are mandatory in several public places in Belgium.
“Checking whether each visitor is wearing a mask is a particularly time-consuming task,” explains Juta Staes, machine learning engineer at ML6. “Assigning this task to an employee is not cost effective and simply placing signs is not enough. Using only a computer and a camera, our AI application checks every customer for a face mask automatically.”
