Invisibility Clothing Created By Students Is Designed To Hide People From AI Cameras.

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of AI-based video surveillance cameras that use AI to identify people and objects. However, a new invention called InvisDefense has been developed to hide the wearer from these surveillance cameras.

Invisibility cloak helps keep wearer within sight of surveillance cameras The InvisDefense coat is one of the initiatives that won first place in the Huawei Cup, the inaugural cybersecurity innovation competition backed by Chinese tech giant Huawei. Chinese students at Wuhan University have developed an AI-based "invisibility cloak" called InvisDefense to hide the wearer from surveillance cameras. The costumes cost around $71. While the invention allows a camera to record a person, artificial intelligence cannot recognize the presence of a person in an image or video.

The present invention is a low-cost coat that can be worn day and night without fear of being recognized by numerous intelligent video surveillance systems installed in major cities. The InvisDefense jacket is a low-cost solution to the problem of being identified by AI-based video surveillance cameras. It's an effective way to dodge those cameras, and it's also comfortable to wear.

InvisDefense is a jacket imprinted with special algorithms that can confuse visible light cameras during daylight hours. It also has a built-in heat sensor that emits a special heat signature at night to confuse infrared cameras. This makes it difficult for AI to recognize if there is a human in an image or video.

Chinese researchers believe the InvisDefense cloak could be worn by soldiers as a uniform to avoid detection by drones or other devices when AI is used on the battlefield. However, the downside is that some detection systems in self-driving vehicles can be fooled by clothing.

Chinese graduate students have managed to create a coat that makes people invisible to video surveillance systems operated on the basis of artificial intelligence algorithms. Called InvisDefense, the technology was developed by a group of students at the University of Wuhan, as part of an innovation and cybersecurity competition. The competition was supported by the Chinese Huawei.

The InvisDefende project was the winner of the competition and, a priori, it is just an ordinary bed, but the piece has a camouflage pattern that manages to be efficient against surveillance cameras that use AI-based algorithms. The recognition accuracy of artificial intelligence CCTV cameras has decreased by more than half (by 57%). However, students plan to further improve InvisDefense.

Camouflage manages to deceive the recognition system both during the day and at night. A special image is applied to clothes, tricking artificial intelligence during the day. During analysis in infrared light, an unusual thermal pattern kicks in, hiding the person from the camera lens. “InvisDefense can also be used in anti-drone combat or human-machine confrontation on the battlefield.”, explains the study. “Currently, many surveillance devices can detect human bodies. Roadside cameras have pedestrian detection functions, and smart cars can identify pedestrians, roads and obstacles. Our InvisDefense allows the camera to capture you, but it can't tell if you're human . "

According to those responsible for the project, “InvisDefense was designed to protect privacy and the unwanted or malicious detection of people, while ensuring that its objective is not to subvert the extensive surveillance and facial recognition system that China has implemented. “The fact that the security cameras cannot detect the InvisDefense coat means that they are defective and researchers can use our algorithms to improve current models” , says Wei Hui, one of the PhD students who is part of the team and responsible for the algorithm. The cost of the garment is US$70. The graduate students also said they intend to create the same camouflage for vehicles and will think about how to trick satellite tracking systems.
