Neurotechnology Spins Off SkyBiometry as New Company
Dec 17, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
SkyBiometry, a new company providing cloud-based biometric software as a service (SaaS), was officially launched as a spin-off of Neurotechnology, a provider of high-precision biometric identification, object recognition and computer vision technologies for more than 20 years.
According to a release, in conjunction with the corporate launch, SkyBiometry introduced a free, cloud-based face detection and recognition API based on a facial recognition algorithm from Neurotechnology, the underlying technology behind many commercial facial recognition products around the world. SkyBiometry also offers a range of paid plans and services to help customers rapidly integrate biometric technologies into their products and online services.
"With the launch of SkyBiometry we are pleased to provide cloud-based biometric products and services," said Denis Kocetkov, CEO of SkyBiometry. "The flexibility and scalability of the SaaS delivery model, together with trusted and proven computer vision technology, creates unique advantages in helping to solve our customers' business needs."
"Some face recognition integrators prefer to implement their solutions as online services instead of implementing them as on-premises end-user applications," said Dr. Algimantas Malickas, CEO of Neurotechnology. "SkyBiometry offers integrators an easy way to use our face recognition technologies in their online service offerings."
The company said it is making its first offering, the new SkyBiometry face detection and recognition API, available for free. The new API gives developers who are new to biometric face recognition a no-risk opportunity to explore using the technology. It also provides the large group of developers who have invested time and money in creating applications based on the discontinued face.com API to continue their work with a compatible API while taking advantage of the SkyBiometry facial identification algorithm.
