Website reunites son with parents after 27 years
Technology has helped reunite a family in China with their son after 27 years.
Fu Gui was kidnapped as a child and had little memory of his parents. He uploaded his picture taken at the age of 10 to a website that uses Artificial Intelligence- AI technology to match faces.
Interestingly, his parents uploaded his pictures on the same website a few months later and the software identified the face in the two uploads.
The website is called Baobeihuijia in Chinese, meaning ‘Baby Come Home’. It has been created to reunite families as thousands of kids are kidnapped in China every year.
The website’s system can only match photos taken six years apart at present and may improve in future.
