Experience

  • Face Recognition System (Development)

    Face Recognition system is a PoC based on deep learning. Users can create profiles on the system, the number of required images for the profile can vary and depend on configuration. Next step is that the user can verify new image against the enrolled profile. The system is set to minimize false positive rate, and prevent impostors to verify as registered users. It can also execute identification against all enrolled users.

    Because it is trained on best-known datasets, it is very robust to illuminance, image blur, head pose variation, gender, and ethnicity.

  • Couriers Delivery Forecasting System (Development)

    A recommendation system for couriers based on machine learning models that can predict next delivery in spatial grid and time, based on historical data.
