Online Face Recognition and Gender Representation

In a previous post I talked about a locally installed facial recognition tool that I developed for a client who wanted to generate statistics on gender representation in linear TV.

My client’s analysis using this tool has now been featured on The Influential Women Podcast, and Times Radio.

I have now developed an online version of the tool, allowing users to detect faces in any youtube video, and then to classify gender and generate statistics on representation. The tool is deployed using a range of AWS services, making it highly scalable.
