This way, we can use computing to our advantage to help find lost people and pets and to connect those who have seen them and are missing them as quickly as possible. Why wait for humans to filter through the images when a computer can match them up for us? Add to this the use of geolocation and geotagging in images and we can also plot the time and location each person or pet was seen on Google Maps so you can see the exact path your family member or pet has taken. Did I mention this service will be completely free and donation based? We will NEVER charge for the service but we sure hope enough people will donate to keep it running. I've created a video for those interested in more detail.
I’m a computer scientist of 10 years with a background from private to government sectors. However, I’ve quit all of my paying jobs to pursue setting up this service and running it full time because I want my knowledge and experience to help people. If we each can do just a little to help, the world will be a better place. That starts with using what we have and what we know to push the boundaries of technology. This project will do that: possibly saving the lives of many people and pets who would be lost forever.
I hope everyone who reads this is as excited about the humanitarian possibilities as I am. And, if you like it and believe in it, please spread the word! We can use all the backing we can get for this great project. You can follow us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/
