IIT-Madras offers AI-based tech to help army predict stone pelting in Jammu and Kashmir


A group of students of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)- Madras, has developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-based technology for predicting crowd behaviour and offered it to the Indian Army for possible use in Jammu and Kashmir to deal with stone pelters who attack security forces, two officials said on condition of anonymity.

“Using action recognition algorithms, crowd density maps and analysis of live images coming in from CCTV cameras, it is possible to predict abnormal events including stone pelting. We think it could help the Indian Army that faces such attacks regularly in J&K,” said S Raghav Vaidyanathan, student executive head, Centre for Innovation, IIT-Madras.

Stone pelters have interfered in army operations in Kashmir, seeking to distract their attention to help militant gunmen escape. Read More
