Detailed 3D Image Recognition with Explainable-AI
Detail is Everything!
Details (fine features) are must-have in useful image recognition and search for consumers or users to get what they want, e.g., in e-commerce.
The major limitation today is failing to recognize details beyond generic categories or classifications.
Other technologies are failing to learn and detect the fine details of 3D objects.
The existing AI technologies in industry are based on variants of neural network technologies which not only require many training samples for machine learning, but also produce only generic level output. Their structure, as well as the training approach, prevent machine learning of fine details, where the interesting features usually reside.
"We are removing today's barriers and limitations in image recognition...We have figured out how to apply Explainable-AI to machine learning, for the first time in the industry."

What We Do
Applying Explainable-AI to Machine Learning for the first time in the industry
ZAC is a disruptive 3D image recognition & search platform based on Explainable-AI.
The platform mimics how humans discover, recognize, and learn.
We require only a few training samples, with reusable, modular, cumulative and scalable learning, enabling the technology to detect fine details in images taken at various camera angles (3D).
Our technology overcomes the major limitations in neural networks (e.g., Deep CNN & GAN), which are failing to recognize details beyond generic categories or classifications.
Our horizontal platform features tools and APIs to enable wide variety of vertical applications and industries to take advantage of the platform's efficient, detailed, and accurate recognition and search, e.g., for medical imaging/diagnosis, e-commerce/retail, search engine, referral and ad networks, social networks, learning machines, data mining, knowledge extraction & analytics, big data (e.g., generated from sensors, cameras, wearables, or IoTs), video summarization or search, self-driving/autonomous vehicles, biometrics, security, and military and intelligence applications.
