Automating WhatsApp Web with Alright and Python

Alright is a python wrapper that helps you automate WhatsApp web using python, giving you the capability to send messages, images, video, and files to both saved and unsaved contacts without having to rescan the QR code every time.

Why Alright?

I was looking for a way to control and automate WhatsApp web with Python; I came across some very nice libraries and wrappers implementations, including:

  1. pywhatkit
  2. pywhatsapp
  3. PyWhatsapp
  4. WebWhatsapp-Wrapper

So I tried

pywhatkit, a well crafted to be used, but its implementations require you to open a new browser tab and scan QR code every time you send a message, no matter if it’s the same person, which was a deal-breaker for using it.

I then tried

pywhatsapp,which is based onyowsupand require you to do some registration withyowsupbefore using it of which after a bit of googling, I got scared of having my number blocked. So I went for the next option.

I then went for WebWhatsapp-Wrapper. It has some good documentation and recent commits so I had hoped it is going to work. But It didn’t for me, and after having a couple of errors, I abandoned it to look for the next alternative.

PyWhatsapp by shauryauppal, which was more of a CLI tool than a wrapper, surprisingly worked. Its approach allows you to dynamically send WhatsApp messages to unsaved contacts without rescanning QR-code every time.

So what I did is refactoring the implementation of that tool to be more of a wrapper to easily allow people to run different scripts on top of it. Instead of just using it as a tool, I then thought of sharing the codebase with people who might struggle to do this as I did.

What Is Face Recognition? Facial Recognition with Python and OpenCV

In this article, we will know what is face recognition and how is different from face detection. We will go briefly over the theory of face recognition and then jump on to the coding section. At the end of this article, you will be able to make a face recognition program for recognizing faces in images as well as on a live webcam feed.

What is Face Detection?

In computer vision, one essential problem we are trying to figure out is to automatically detect objects in an image without human intervention. Face detection can be thought of as such a problem where we detect human faces in an image. There may be slight differences in the faces of humans but overall, it is safe to say that there are certain features that are associated with all the human faces. There are various face detection algorithms but Viola-Jones Algorithm is one of the oldest methods that is also used today and we will use the same later in the article. You can go through the Viola-Jones Algorithm after completing this article as I’ll link it at the end of this article.

Face detection is usually the first step towards many face-related technologies, such as face recognition or verification. However, face detection can have very useful applications. The most successful application of face detection would probably be photo taking. When you take a photo of your friends, the face detection algorithm built into your digital camera detects where the faces are and adjusts the focus accordingly.

For a tutorial on Real-Time Face detection

What is Face Recognition?

face recognition

Now that we are successful in making such algorithms that can detect faces, can we also recognise whose faces are they?

Face recognition is a method of identifying or verifying the identity of an individual using their face. There are various algorithms that can do face recognition but their accuracy might vary. Here I am going to describe how we do face recognition using deep learning.

So now let us understand how we recognise faces using deep learning. We make use of face embedding in which each face is converted into a vector and this technique is called deep metric learning. Let me further divide this process into three simple steps for easy understanding:

Face Detection: The very first task we perform is detecting faces in the image or video stream. Now that we know the exact location/coordinates of face, we extract this face for further processing ahead.
 

Feature Extraction: Now that we have cropped the face out of the image, we extract features from it. Here we are going to use face embeddings to extract the features out of the face. A neural network takes an image of the person’s face as input and outputs a vector which represents the most important features of a face. In machine learning, this vector is called embedding and thus we call this vector as face embedding. Now how does this help in recognizing faces of different persons? 
 

While training the neural network, the network learns to output similar vectors for faces that look similar. For example, if I have multiple images of faces within different timespan, of course, some of the features of my face might change but not up to much extent. So in this case the vectors associated with the faces are similar or in short, they are very close in the vector space. Take a look at the below diagram for a rough idea:

Now after training the network, the network learns to output vectors that are closer to each other(similar) for faces of the same person(looking similar). The above vectors now transform into:

We are not going to train such a network here as it takes a significant amount of data and computation power to train such networks. We will use a pre-trained network trained by Davis King on a dataset of ~3 million images. The network outputs a vector of 128 numbers which represent the most important features of a face.

Now that we know how this network works, let us see how we use this network on our own data. We pass all the images in our data to this pre-trained network to get the respective embeddings and save these embeddings in a file for the next step.

Comparing faces: Now that we have face embeddings for every face in our data saved in a file, the next step is to recognise a new t image that is not in our data. So the first step is to compute the face embedding for the image using the same network we used above and then compare this embedding with the rest of the embeddings we have. We recognise the face if the generated embedding is closer or similar to any other embedding as shown below:

So we passed two images, one of the images is of Vladimir Putin and other of George W. Bush. In our example above, we did not save the embeddings for Putin but we saved the embeddings of Bush. Thus when we compared the two new embeddings with the existing ones, the vector for Bush is closer to the other face embeddings of Bush whereas the face embeddings of Putin are not closer to any other embedding and thus the program cannot recognise him.

What is OpenCV

In the field of Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision is one of the most interesting and Challenging tasks. Computer Vision acts like a bridge between Computer Software and visualizations around us. It allows computer software to understand and learn about the visualizations in the surroundings. For Example: Based on the color, shape and size determining the fruit. This task can be very easy for the human brain however in the Computer Vision pipeline, first we gather the data, then we perform the data processing activities and then we train and teach the model to understand how to distinguish between the fruits based on size, shape and color of fruit. 

Currently, various packages are present to perform machine learning, deep learning and computer vision tasks. By far, computer vision is the best module for such complex activities. OpenCV is an open-source library. It is supported by various programming languages such as R, Python. It runs on most of the platforms such as Windows, Linux and MacOS.

To know more about how face recognition works on opencv, check out the free course on face recognition in opencv.

Advantages of OpenCV:

  • OpenCV is an open-source library and is free of cost.
  • As compared to other libraries, it is fast since it is written in C/C++.
  • It works better on System with lesser RAM
  • To supports most of the Operating Systems such as Windows, Linux and MacOS.
  •  

Installation: 

Here we will be focusing on installing OpenCV for python only. We can install OpenCV using pip or conda(for anaconda environment). 

  1. Using pip: 

Using pip, the installation process of openCV can be done by using the following command in the command prompt.

pip install opencv-python

  1. Anaconda:

If you are using anaconda environment, either you can execute the above code in anaconda prompt or you can execute the following code in anaconda prompt.

conda install -c conda-forge opencv

Face Recognition using Python

In this section, we shall implement face recognition using OpenCV and Python. First, let us see the libraries we will need and how to install them:

  • OpenCV
  • dlib
  • Face_recognition

OpenCV is an image and video processing library and is used for image and video analysis, like facial detection, license plate reading, photo editing, advanced robotic vision, optical character recognition, and a whole lot more.
 

The dlib library, maintained by Davis King, contains our implementation of “deep metric learning” which is used to construct our face embeddings used for the actual recognition process.
 

The face_recognition  library, created by Adam Geitgey, wraps around dlib’s facial recognition functionality, and this library is super easy to work with and we will be using this in our code. Remember to install dlib library first before you install face_recognition.
 

To install OpenCV, type in command prompt 
 

pip install opencv-python

I have tried various ways to install dlib on Windows but the easiest of all of them is via Anaconda. First, install Anaconda (here is a guide to install it) and then use this command in your command prompt:
 

conda install -c conda-forge dlib

Next to install face_recognition, type in command prompt

pip install face_recognition

Now that we have all the dependencies installed, let us start coding. We will have to create three files, one will take our dataset and extract face embedding for each face using dlib. Next, we will save these embedding in a file.
 

In the next file we will compare the faces with the existing the recognise faces in images and next we will do the same but recognise faces in live webcam feed
 

Extracting features from Face

First, you need to get a dataset or even create one of you own. Just make sure to arrange all images in folders with each folder containing images of just one person.

Next, save the dataset in a folder the same as you are going to make the file. Now here is the code:

from imutils import paths

import face_recognition

import pickle

import cv2

import os

#get paths of each file in folder named Images

#Images here contains my data(folders of various persons)

imagePaths = list(paths.list_images('Images'))

knownEncodings = []

knownNames = []

# loop over the image paths

for (i, imagePath) in enumerate(imagePaths):

    # extract the person name from the image path

    name = imagePath.split(os.path.sep)[-2]

    # load the input image and convert it from BGR (OpenCV ordering)

    # to dlib ordering (RGB)

    image = cv2.imread(imagePath)

    rgb = cv2.cvtColor(image, cv2.COLOR_BGR2RGB)

    #Use Face_recognition to locate faces

    boxes = face_recognition.face_locations(rgb,model='hog')

    # compute the facial embedding for the face

    encodings = face_recognition.face_encodings(rgb, boxes)

    # loop over the encodings

    for encoding in encodings:

        knownEncodings.append(encoding)

        knownNames.append(name)

#save emcodings along with their names in dictionary data

data = {"encodings": knownEncodings, "names": knownNames}

#use pickle to save data into a file for later use

f = open("face_enc", "wb")

f.write(pickle.dumps(data))

f.close()

Now that we have stored the embedding in a file named “face_enc”, we can use them to recognise faces in images or live video stream.
