“The research consists of four main phases: The first phase involves extraction of the silhouette of an individual. Calculating the gait period or gait cycle of the individual follows this. Finding the sum of silhouettes is the next step. Finally, similarity score computation and matching process is performed for recognition. Any two images when compared using root mean square value are said to be similar if the value falls under the given threshold.” 1
“Spend a little bit of time with neural networks, and you realize that anyone holding something in their hand is likely to be identified as someone ‘holding a cellphone,’ or ‘holding a Wii controller.’” 2
