PARAMUS, N.J. — Corsight AI announces the launch of global operations to provide autonomous artificial intelligence software solutions for professional security and business intelligence applications.
Leading the new venture are industry veterans Gadi Piran, Mulli Diamant and Yoav Millet, founders and executive members previously from VMS provider OnSSI. Corsight offers advanced facial recognition solutions with autonomous AI technology built on neural network technology that emerged from research at the renowned Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.
Headquartered in the United States with an R&D Center in Israel, Corsight recently raised $5 million from Awz Ventures, a Canadian fund focused on intelligence and security technologies, according to the announcement.
Unlike AI solutions based on deep learning, the autonomous AI employed by Corsight is said to deliver a higher level of intelligence that mimics the way humans interpret sensory inputs to better anticipate and predict events and understand surroundings. This allows Corsight technology to recognize different faces even at extreme angles with outstanding speed and accuracy even when presented in different perspectives under diverse lighting and environmental conditions.
Corsight solutions are built on a foundation of more than 250 patents registered to date. By leveraging the huge volume of data captured by today’s video surveillance cameras of all types, Corsight’s autonomous AI facial recognition solution makes any video surveillance camera a portal for AI data analysis, the announcement states.
Applications include real-time facial recognition analytics for identification and access control credentialing even when faces are concealed by face-masks, goggles or plastic shields, as well as people counting, anomaly detection and forensic analysis. With privacy as a primary charter, all Corsight autonomous AI solutions are developed with extensive provisions engineered to protect each individual’s privacy.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the immediate demand for innovative security technologies. Just a few months ago we all believed that the new autonomous AI facial recognition solution we were preparing to launch was far ahead of its time. As it turns out, it is just in time,” says Piran, CEO at Corsight. “Corsight facial recognition delivers the power to unlock the massive volumes of data captured by any video source, organize it into comprehensible intelligence, and deliver actionable insights while setting new standards in performance and personal privacy. After years of expectation, it was this new level of facial recognition technology that drew Mulli, Yoav and me back into the industry, and we are most excited to begin a new journey with Corsight.”
