D-ID the only company that protects identities from facial recognition systems, announced that it is one of ten 2019 Netexplo award winners for developing an artificial intelligence technology that protects facial images from being automatically detected by face-recognition algorithms. D-ID was selected from over 2,000 technology initiatives.
“Every year Netexplo awards 10 of the most promising digital initiatives globally, selected for their innovative use of technology and potential social impact. D-ID is an innovation that deserves to be showcased – providing ground-breaking technology, D-ID pioneers the use of AI in a way that is likely to create far-reaching impact on privacy protection,” said Marcus Goddard, VP Intelligence at Netexplo.
Gil Perry, co-founder and CEO of D-ID said: “Our face has become our password – but unlike passwords, we cannot change our face, so we have to protect it.” Perry went on to say, “We have developed an AI technology that make images unrecognizable to face recognition algorithms – while keeping them similar to the human eye. This allows people to store, share and utilize images and videos without having to worry about their faces being picked up, identified and misused by automated face recognition tools.”
