Detailed description

Kairos is an artificial intelligence company specializing in Face Recognition. Through computer vision and machine learning, we can recognize faces in videos, photos, and the real-world - making it easier than ever to transform the way businesses interact with people. Kairos navigates the traditional complexities of face analysis technology, by offering a powerful suite of developer tools any business can integrate with ease. Founded in 2012 and based in Miami, Kairos is a venture backed organization servicing a diverse global customer base. Kairos’ face analysis platform is comprised of three core features: 

  • Identity - used for searching and verifying faces; 
  • Emotions - used for measuring sentiment and mood; 
  • Demographics - used for gathering demographic data; age, gender, and ethnicity.

Kairos is building a first of its kind identity standard for using biometrics on the blockchain. And plans to open it up to the whole world. Our design preserves anonymity, while suffocating malicious intent, such as fraud.

Problem

The global face recognition market is expected to grow from USD 4.05 billion in 2017 to USD 7.76 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.9% during forecast period (From: Research and Markets, 2017). Most recently, Apple’s new iPhone X with it’s ‘always on’ FaceID solution has affected a true inflection point for the technology. Still, behind this explosive growth of the technology comes an even greater, more tangible shift in the world.

Solution

Carrying our identity everywhere we go, yet it exists in many different places- and is often incomplete, inaccurate, and even subject to fraud. Digitally, ‘you’ are often abstracted as a username and password; in the real world a driver's licence or social security number is your record of existence. But what about the real you? The you that likes to spin before work, the you that prefers coffee over tea, the you that feels strongly about managing your privacy. 

Kairos’ Human Analytics tools enable Enterprises to capture actionable Human Metrics. Defined, Human Metrics are the measurement of responses to human behavior. Each of our products yields insights that can be used to evaluate business KPIs, and ultimately go a step further and help unlock insights about customers. 

Features

Beyond the technology, Kairos was conceived around three guiding principles which serve as the business's day-to-day compass: 

  • Empathy - The act of listening intently to customers, co-workers, and members of our communities. 
  • Design First - The understanding that design is not superficial, but integral and defines our work. 
  • Simplicity - The skill of transforming complicated technologies into user friendly products.
