Identity Protection Suite

Anonymizing publicly-recorded image and video data is important to comply with increasing data privacy regulations like GDPR and CCPA. brighter AI’s Identity Protection Suite provides the most advanced solutions to protect personally identifiable information in camera data. The software is container-based and provides a RESTful API. As it is camera-agnostic and supports all standard image, video and streaming formats, the Identity Protection Suite can be used for a great variety of use cases.

Face Anonymization

Faces are our most sensitive identifiers in public. With the increasing capabilities of facial recognition technology, handling large datasets from CCTV, automotive or smartphone cameras is a substantial risk. brighter AI provides not only Precision Blur, the most advanced face redaction solution, but also Deep Natural Anonymization. With this solution, synthetic face overlays protect individuals from facial recognition, while maintaining the value of the data for analytics and machine learning.

License Plate Anonymization

In mobility datasets, license plates are the most present personal identifiers. With the Identity Protection Suite, brighter AI provides license plate redaction as well as artificial overlays that appear natural. Maintaining a natural appearance is particularly important in use cases that involve machine learning, for example for the development of autonomous vehicles or ADAS functions. Here, Deep Natural Anonymization has no adverse impact on neural networks.
