It is an image search engine that is used as a software as a service. Nyris uses a wide range of technologies for image recognition, including artificial intelligence and neural networks and results are displayed in less than one second. The company takes the approach of layering on varying analysis technologies in sequence, and as needed, to repeat the iteration until the desired outcome is achieved.
Location: Berlin, Germany
Differentiator: 20 Billion Neurons (20BN) uses cameras and computer vision to understand live gestures and human expressions in a similar manner how the human eye and brain would intercept. Twenty Billion Neuronsbuild artificial intelligence solutions that can see, understand, and interact with the users in real time. The company’s computer vision algorithm can identify subtle and human actions, such as eyes gestures in case of a stare, drinking water, eating food and much more.
Differentiator: EVK started as a hyperspectral imaging business, and upon transitioning to the family’s next generation, CEO Matjaz Novak and CTO Matthias Kerschhaggl have transitioned the company into, a proper startup business. In addition to producing innovative hyperspectral camera products, EVK also creates the intelligence to infer what is seen by the cameras. It is the vision intelligence behind many waste recycling conveyor lines enabling the immediate identification of certain types of plastics for autonomous sorting. EVK is also deploying quality control solutions in agriculture by identifying imperfections in fruits and vegetables that are not easily visible to the human eye.
Location: Gurugram, Haryana, India
Differentiator: Intello Labs is India’s Most Awarded Agritech Venture Pioneering the Concept of Non-Destructive Digital Commodity Grading. Intello Labs started its journey way back in May 2016 to leverage markets where opportunity existed for AI adoption to be welcomed in the early stages.
