Our face recognition technology unlocks a new ecosystem of applications, bringing you the power to invent entirely new markets for your business. With our white-label app, FaceLocate™, a cameraphone can now recognize who is in your photos, automatically tag their name, and share it instantly. Our face recognition technology has been proven to be faster and more accurate than Google Picasa, Microsoft Photo Gallery, and Apple iPhoto. Here are just a few app ideas powered by FaceLocate™, showcasing the business potential of our technology.
WEDDINGS – Capture the perfect day from 250 angles. Wedding photographers are counted on to capture the biggest moments of a couple’s biggest day: vows, posed portraits, first dance, cake cutting. But these days, nearly every guest also carries a great camera, and they are capturing the many spontaneous, special moments that make the event memorable. With FotoWed, you can set up an online wedding album and guests can tag and upload their candid photos, automatically generating a richer memento of the event.
YEARBOOKS – creating a custom school yearbook for every student. Yearbooks capture all the special school moments from the past year. The football team winning the championship, school dances, hallway fun and class pictures. But traditionally, a yearbook can only contain a very edited number of photos. In this camera-phone age, there are a thousand stories to tell, and with FaceLocate™, everyone’s photos can be tagged and sorted, to create a yearbook just the way you want it. Now the 27 million high school students in the U.S can have total control over the memories they want captured and printed in their year book.
COMPANIES – capture your corporate culture. Sales seminars, team-building days, golf tournaments, charity fundraisers – they’re all great opportunities for Fotobounce to enhance the moment. With all employee photos being instantly tagged, organized and shared with other members of the group, it’s an easy way to build your corporate history
SPORTS – Now everyone can make the highlight reel. In the U.S. alone there are over 100 million amateur sport players, with 24.4 million basketball players, 23.3 million baseball players and 13.6 million in soccer. Every season is captured in team and individual pictures, but can be dramatically enriched with game photos, and practice moments captured by friends and family. With FaceLocate™, all these photos can be automatically tagged, organized and shared with every team member — enabling an easily searched highlight reel, and personalized player albums.
FAMILY TREE – Your great, great, great grandchildren will thank you. Over 84 million people count genealogy as a hobby. Our search for meaning in life often begins with a look backwards, through our family history, and shoeboxes of photos. Fast-forward to the future and those old shoeboxes will be replaced with gigabytes of digital photos of our lives today. FotoRoots helps you navigate that vast and quickly growing photo library. Powered by FaceLocate™ recognition technology, FotoRoots helps you speed through decades of photos to easily find and share just the photo you are looking for.
Manufacturers: make your smartphone camera smarter.
FaceLocate™ smartphone camera software automatically matches names to faces. Our face recognition technology has been independently tested and proven to be faster and more accurate than Google Picasa, Microsoft Photo Gallery, or Apple iPhoto. It’s easy to use: the customer just matches a face to a name in their address book once, and after that, the face will be automatically recognized and tagged in future photos. Customers can then instantly find photos, or share directly to Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other social apps.
Patented technology that can grow your business
Our seamless technology enriches the data in your user’s photos, enabling a new ecosystem of identity-based, social-media savvy applications: genealogy, event photo sharing, schools, Alzheimer photo therapy, sport compilations… and more. This enables you to establish partnerships with cloud SaaS and photo management vendors, a first-to-market advantage that can open new revenue streams beyond the sale of the handset. You can even introduce ongoing subscription or advertising revenue models based on these new applications. As your users discover the power of tagged photos, they will seek and pay for services that let them use and share this powerful feature.

Don’t be just another cloud in the sky.
Free…how do you compete with that? If you’re going to thrive rather than just exist you need to offer more than just a place to backup files. Your cloud needs to have a silver lining to turn photos in to applications driving new opportunities and new revenue streams – that’s where Applied Recognition and the FaceLocate™ API comes in.
FaceLocate™ provides the “Who” in Photos.
Storing your precious photos and memories in the cloud for safekeeping is a good idea. But no one wants to sift though 1000’s of photos to find one specific picture. So Applied Recognition turned the cloud into a filing cabinet indexed based on the people in the photos. Using its world-class face recognition technology, FaceLocate™ recognizes and automatically tags the people (aka the “Who”) in your photos. We do this in the Cloud or with the photos taken on smart phones which are sent to the cloud with all the tags intact, ensuring pictures are organized and easily searchable and retrievable.
What “Who” can do for you.
Consider your silver lining found. Since FaceLocate™ automatically recognizes and tags people – the “Who” – here’s your chance to be the first-to-market with a slew of new applications and countless new revenue streams with subscription or advertising models based on these new applications.
A picture is now worth a thousand tags, shares, and shares of the market.
People organizations such as sports clubs and schools take millions of photos every day. When you empower them to share and do more with all those photos you turn priceless moments into revenue. For instance, the U.S has 27 million high school students. With FaceLocate™, each student becomes the school photographer, taking and tagging photos of their buddies at school and uploading them all to the school yearbook; this allows them to create their own custom yearbook. There are over 100 million amateur sports players in the US of which 24 million are amateur basketball players alone – each with team and individual pictures and action shots taken by friends and family. With FaceLocate™, all those photos can be tagged, organized and accessible by the 24 million players and their family creating customized team albums for their season.
