D-ID, a Y Combinator alumni, developed an AI software which protects identities from face recognition technologies. D-IDs technology produces photos and videos which are unrecognizable to face recognition algorithms while keeping them similar to the human eye. Our faces are increasingly being used by organizations to identify and track us, from the moment we cross-border controls, withdraw cash or unlock our smartphones. So protecting photos is becoming a societal and legal necessity because unlike passwords, you can’t change your face. We enable companies, security agencies, and governments to comply with privacy regulations (GDPR) and protect biometric databases. At the meeting point of deep learning and privacy, the companys interdisciplinary group was co-founded by Israeli Defence Forces veterans from Special Forces and 8200. The companys engineering team (14) holds Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees in mathematics, computer vision, computational photography and machine learning.Film documentaries often deal with sensitive issues, leading producers to employ visibly unappealing techniques like silhouettes or masked individuals. Using D-IDs Video Anonymization tools, film producers and documentarians can easily replace a subjects face with an anonymized version. The anonymized face will maintain the same expressions, facial movements and tics, and general characteristics without compromising the identity of the subject.D-IDs advanced blurring solution ensures that youre compliant with regulatory requirements. The system detects faces on film, and automatically applies blurring to remove PII. It can detect faces even in poor lighting, regardless of facial pose, and can accurately detect masked faces. By blurring out PII, your organization is fully compliant with GDPR principles.D-IDs proprietary facial reenactment technology will transform forever the way we view faces. The artificial intelligence-based technology enables the creation of high-quality, realistic video footage, using any driver video to guide the movements, expressions, and speech of the target actor or still photo subject. Our Reenactment-based products offer new groundbreaking capabilities for the media, entertainment, and advertising industries. Our product suite includes Live Portraits, Talking Heads and Lip Sync.
