Visionati, a visual recognition engine that leverages artificial intelligence, recently started to accept BCH, ETH, and BTC.
The startup believes it is one of the first AI-based visual recognition products on the market that can be paid for with cryptocurrency. Other players in the space, such as Google, IBM, Clarifai, and Imagga, do not accept crypto.
The news has been announced in a Facebook post on October 11.
The Visionati platform allows users to leverage metadata hidden in their images and videos. Through an API, the platform analyses users’ images and videos, so that users can make them discoverable and filterable. The features they offer include automatic tagging, NSFW filtering, facial recognition, logo detection, color analysis, and text recognition—all with one API call.
Visionati was launched in October this year by Josh Ellithorpe and Dale Miller, who each bring 20+ years of experience in their respective fields in some of the biggest companies in the world, including Facebook, Google, Oracle, Apcera, and Coinbase.
Josh Ellithorpe told CoinSpice, “Visionati actually started as a totally different project back in 2007. It was like Facebook, but designed for artists, musicians, and videographers with collaboration tools, online portfolio, and a bunch of other cool social network features… However, this was a pretty heavy lift, so we decided to break up the work, and build an awesome visual AI API first.”
Visionati intelligently analyses objects or scenes and quickly returns actionable information and meaningful insights.
The API tags and categorizes a range of different objects, allowing customers to quickly scan photos and videos for the data points that they can later use to promote their business, for example. The platform can also be used to curate content once the images have been analyzed and the desired tags have been applied.
In addition to recognizing different objects, the API can translate text and handwriting using MT. And the built-in facial recognition tech allows the platform to identify specific human emotions: joy, anger, surprise, sorrow.
Everything in Visionati is based on credits that are purchased with either traditional methods or through cryptocurrency via Coinbase Commerce.
Image recognition technology becomes increasingly popular. According to predictions of Allied Market Research and Progressive Markets the value of the market will reach approximately $80 billion by 2025. Visionati’s decision to support cryptocurrency could be a great strategic move.
