MIT CSAIL Sees Thorough Walls

Mentioned once before, continues to draw interest.

A seemingly very radical capability, consider implications privacy and otherwise.  Again caution must be placed to know how directly practical and easy this is to do.  Demos are easy to do.

Artificial intelligence senses people through walls

X-ray vision has long seemed like a far-fetched sci-fi fantasy, but over the last decade a team led by Professor Dina Katabi from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has continually gotten us closer to seeing through walls.

Their latest project, “RF-Pose,” uses artificial intelligence (AI) to teach wireless devices to sense people’s postures and movement, even from the other side of a wall.

The researchers use a neural network to analyze radio signals that bounce off people’s bodies, and can then create a dynamic stick figure that walks, stops, sits, and moves its limbs as the person performs those actions.  ... "
