SkyBiometry launches, offering SaaS biometrics

SkyBiometry, a new company, launched yesterday as a spin-off of Neurotechnology, a provider of precision biometrics. The firm provides a cloud platform for high-precision biometric identification. In conjunction with the launch, SkyBiometry introduced a free, cloud-based face detection and recognition API based on Neurotechnology’s facial recognition algorithm. The new API provides the large group of developers who have invested time and money in creating applications based on the discontinued face.com API to continue their work with a compatible API while taking advantage of the robust SkyBiometry facial identification algorithm.

The rapid growth of cloud technologies is creating opportunities for developers and integrators to deliver better products faster than ever before. The fast, accurate detection and identification technologies offered by SkyBiometry can be used for traditional biometric identification systems such as user ID, security and time management as well as new uses in entertainment, games, online marketing, social media and mobile applications.

The company is making its first offering, the new SkyBiometry face detection and recognition API, available for free. The new API gives developers who are new to biometric face recognition a no-risk opportunity to explore using the technology. It also provides the large group of developers who have invested time and money in creating applications based on the discontinued face.com API to continue their work with a compatible API while taking advantage of the robust SkyBiometry facial identification algorithm.

The SkyBiometry service is accessible via the internet. A user sends an image (digital photograph) to the secure SkyBiometry web server. SkyBiometry processes the image using fast and highly accurate recognition technology and returns the result to the user.

“With the launch of SkyBiometry we are pleased to provide cloud-based biometric products and services, said Denis Kocetkov, CEO of SkyBiometry, noting that the online interface will allow businesses and law enforcement to implement biometrics without requiring onsite technology.
