Neurotechnology is a developer of high-precision algorithms and software based on deep neural network (DNN) and other AI-related technologies. The company offers a range of products for biometric fingerprint, face, iris, palm print and voice identification as well as AI, computer vision, object recognition and robotics. More than 3,000 system integrators, security companies and hardware providers integrate Neurotechnology's algorithms into their products.
With millions of customer installations worldwide, Neurotechnology's products are used for both civil and forensic applications, including border crossings, criminal investigations, systems for voter registration, verification and duplication checking, passport issuance and other national-scale projects. Neurotechnology's algorithms have also achieved top results in independent technology evaluations, including NIST MINEX and IREX.
Drawing from years of academic research in the fields of neuroinformatics, image processing and pattern recognition, Neurotechnology was founded in 1990 in Vilnius, Lithuania under the name Neurotechnologija and released its first fingerprint identification system in 1991. Since that time the company has released more than 130 products and version upgrades for identification and verification of objects and personal identity.
Biometric Technologies and Products
With a combination of fast algorithms and high reliability, company's fingerprint, face, eye iris and voice biometric technologies can be used for access control, computer security, banking, time attendance control and law enforcement applications, among others.
Neurotechnology's fingerprint identification algorithms have shown one of the best results for reliability in major biometric competitions and evaluations, including the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) Minutiae Interoperability Exchange III (MINEX III), Proprietary Fingerprint Template Evaluation II (PFT II) and Fingerprint Vendor Technology Evaluation for the US Department of Justice (FpVTE 2012). The company's MegaMatcher fingerprint identification engine has been recognized by NIST as fully MINEX compliant allowing to use it in U.S. Government Personal Identity Verification program (PIV) fingerprint recognition applications. Previously, the fingerprint recognition algorithms have received awards in the International Fingerprint Verification Competitions (FVC2006, FVC2004, FVC2002 and FVC2000).
VeriEye iris identification engine has been tested in the NIST Iris Exchange (IREX) Evaluation and recognized as one of the most reliably accurate iris recognition algorithms among those tested.
Computer Vision, Robotics and A.I.
In 2004 Neurotechnology began research in artificial intelligence (A.I.), computer vision and mobile autonomous robotics fields, and in the same year the company's AI division was founded. The company's object recognition, surveillance, eye movement tracking and 3D object model reconstruction technologies use advanced computer-based vision algorithms and are applicable to a variety of applications, as well as for generic robot and machine vision.
In 2014 Neurotechnology released SentiBotics – a ready-to-use robotics development kit. SentiBotics enables the rapid development and testing of mobile robots and comes with software, sample programs, a tracked platform and grasping robotic arm, 3D vision, object recognition and autonomous navigation capabilities. The kit includes a mobile robotic platform with a 3D vision system, modular robotic arm and accompanying Neurotechnology-developed, ROS-based software with complete source code and programming samples.
In 2017 Neurotechnology researchers won first place in a Kaggle competition with deep neural network based computer vision solution for classifying fish species.
Ultrasound Research Group
In 2014 Neurotechnology's Ultrasound Research Group started working on ultrasonic 3D printing projects and other ultrasound-related research.
In 2017 the Ultrasound Research Group announced that it is developing a new, patent-pending ultrasonic 3D printing technology. This new technology is intended to enable 3D printing and assembly of almost any type of object using a wide range of different materials and components.
