The Union Minister of Commerce & Industry and Civil Aviation has launched mobile application “ReUnite” in New Delhi to track and trace missing and abandoned children in India. The app is available for both Android and iOS. It has been developed by Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi‘s NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan and IT company Capgemini.
The ReUnite app is multiuser where parents and citizens can upload pictures of children and provide detailed description like name, address, birth mark, search and identify missing kids and report to the police station. It uses Amazon Rekognition, a web based facial recognition service to identify missing kids. The photographs uploaded on the app will not be saved in the mobile phone’s physical memory.
