Crowd counter is a piece of software able to track moving features within a video clip. It works on the assumption that points that move together are most likely part of the same entity within the crowd. Another version of the crowd counter uses information about the direction of individuals' movement to estimate where they are looking.

Man! if the military get hold of this technology they could create a horribly efficient automatic machine gun...

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
