AR smart glasses to merge with AI, computer vision to ID images
TensorMark – whose AI and computer vision technology has applications developed for multiple verticals including loyalty and retail; corporate and personal security and access control; and banking services and fintech – has been developing an interface specifically for the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses. The interface takes advantage of the physical attributes of the Blade Smart Glasses, including the color display and on-board camera, to integrate TensorMark’s cloud-based AI and computer vision technology and more specifically facial and object recognition.
With the TensorMark technology and the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses, say the companies, users will be able to ID a limitless number of facial and object images hosted on a cloud database that can be customized and catered specifically for every client. Security camera output, as well as drone aerial footage, can be analyzed by the TensorMark backend system to provide important information and send alerts directly to the display on the Vuzix Blade, providing real-time digital intelligence.
TensorMark says it is also working on adding the ability to predict behavior patterns using emotion detection to provide users with even more vital information with its AI algorithm.
J.P. Weston, CEO and co-founder of TensorMark says, “The combination of the Vuzix Blade with our facial and object recognition backend will open up very significant business opportunities for both companies across numerous market verticals that include border patrol, first responders, hospitality, retail, and banking.”
Paul Travers, CEO and president, Vuzix says, “The TensorMark solution, working in unison with the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses and leveraging the ongoing developments in 5G and edge computing, will be a recipe that will disrupt the personal and professional security marketplace. We are excited to partner with TensorMark to address the growing interest in the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses across the security market.”
The companies say they are collaborating on numerous facial and object recognition proof-of-concept demos centered around the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses, including one with a Fortune 50 company that is evaluating the solution for deployment across their customer base, leveraging AI and edge computing to provide enhanced intelligence to security personnel.
