Moscow already has more than 150,000 cameras monitoring its 12 million population. Now the authorities look to augment the monitoring systems with AI. These systems are aimed at identifying suspicious actions: someone very quickly waving his arms, running, grabbing an object that resembles a weapon. Moscow’s face recognition start-up Ntechlab is the frontrunner to deliver services to the mass surveillance programme that is underway.

NtechLab's CEO Alex Minin discusses the possibilities of the implementation of recognition technologies in the cities of the future. "There is no way to abandon or avoid facial recognition. The police force is costly and does not bring added value, so ideally, the ration policemen/general population should be as low as possible. We pay for the police force, so let’s minimise it. If they have the right tools, this can be done" - he told Sputnik.

Founded in 2015, Russian startup NtechLab has taken in $1.5 million in funding to develop a client-side facial recognition solution where no biometric data is transferred or stored by the company. Their service not only verifies or identifies faces, but recognizes age, gender, and emotions. The company’s algorithms received praise in Washington in 2017, winning the first-ever facial recognition competition devised by the R&D team run by the Director of National Intelligence. With 2,000 customers globally including the UK, US, and China, NtechLab’s technology is used in public safety, dating, security, banking, retail, entertainment, and events organization. We sat down to talk with NtechLab’s CEO, Alex Minin, to learn about how NtechLab is going head to head with Chinese computer vision startups that have taken in hundreds of millions in funding.

In competition with Moscow, Russia’s AI development companies are second to none. Many countries have started implementing such technologies as the confidence of AI developers increases. NtechLab, an AI startup, is one of the top contenders, that features FindFace face recognition technology. They were used to detect threat during the World Cup the following year. It helped in uncovering property theft and preventing other crimes.

NtechLab, a Russian software developer of neural networks and machine learning, created an emotion recognition algorithm that can detect emotions by analyzing your face. According to the startup, the solution can be adapted to different markets and industries, including media and entertainment - for example, to test a new advertisement to learn what kind of reaction it caused in focus groups.
