Object Detection using Convolutional Neural Networks

Image and Video Anonymization with Deep Learning

Our core technology is object detection using deep convolutional networks (CNN), which in recent years has rapidly evolved from an academic playground to production-ready tools for solving industrial use cases fast and effectively.

We combine different architectures such as instance segmentation (Mask R-CNN[1] with a FPN backbone[2]) and keypoint detection (based on Faster R-CNN[3]) to anonymize people, vehicles, faces or license plates.

We are currently looking into different technologies:

  • Semi-supervised methods, e.g. MixMatch[4], to efficiently train better models using larger datasets,
  • Different Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN)[5] to anonymize images by repainting critical areas, which in contrast to blurring minimizes the aesthetic impact while protecting the privacy of the affected people, and
  • Lossless Network/Model Compression to further reduce costs and energy consumption, as well as increase portability of our ML models.

As part of the NVIDIA Inception program for AI startups, we have access to support, expertise and training by NVIDIA, the leading AI hardware manufacturer.

Scalable and Flexible Anonymization Pipeline

While deep learning enables us to automate high-quality anonymization with superior precision and sensitivity, we rely on traditional software engineering craftsmanship to deliver our solution to our customers in a fast and reliable manner.

In collaboration with the AWS Austria team and AWS Activate, we have set up our scalable and flexible cloud system in GDPR-compliant data centres around Europe. Expensive accelerated computing instances are only utilised when required, allowing us to process 200.000+ images per day cost-effectively, to our customer's benefit.
