Vuzix Announces Partnership with Cloud-Based AI and Computer Vision Technology Provider TensorMark
Partnership Brings TensorMark's AI and Computer Vision Technology Suite to Vuzix Blade® Smart Glasses
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced a partnership with US based TensorMark, a cloud-based AI and computer vision technology provider, to integrate their two innovative and game changing solutions on the Vuzix Blade® Smart Glasses.
TensorMark's AI and computer vision technology is robust and agile with applications developed for multiple verticals including loyalty and retail; corporate and personal security and access control; and banking services and Fintech. TensorMark has been developing an interface specifically for the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses that takes advantage of the physical attributes of the device, including the color display and on-board camera, to integrate TensorMark's cloud-based AI and computer vision technology and more specifically facial and object recognition.
With the TensorMark technology and the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses, customers will be able to ID a limitless number of facial and object images hosted on a cloud database that can be customized and catered specifically for every client. Security camera output, as well as drone aerial footage, can be analyzed by the TensorMark backend system to provide important information and send alerts directly to the display on the Vuzix Blade, providing real-time digital intelligence to customers. TensorMark is also working on adding the ability to predict behavior patterns using emotion detection to provide clients with even more vital information with its AI algorithm.
"We are thrilled about our partnership with Vuzix to bring our AI and computer vision technology suite to the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses," said J.P. Weston, CEO and co-founder of TensorMark. "The combination of the Vuzix Blade with our facial and object recognition backend will open up very significant business opportunities for both companies across numerous market verticals that include border patrol, first responders, hospitality, retail, and banking."
"The TensorMark solution, working in unison with the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses and leveraging the ongoing developments in 5G and edge computing, will be a recipe that will disrupt the personal and professional security marketplace," said Paul Travers, CEO and president, Vuzix. "We are excited to partner with TensorMark to address the growing interest in the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses across the security market.
The companies are collaborating on numerous facial and object recognition POC demos centered around the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses, including one with a Fortune 50 company that is evaluating the solution for deployment across their customer base, leveraging AI and edge computing to provide enhanced intelligence to security personnel. More information on the solution can be found on TensorMark's website.
