Gradiant launches AI-based automatic forgery detection for digital documents
Gradiant is showcasing Valida, its new automatic forensic analysis technology to detect forgeries in digital documents at the “4 Years From Now” (4YFN) startup business platform at Mobile World Congress 2019 Barcelona.
Valida prevents fraud in online user verification, digital onboarding, and KYC processes by automatically analyzing any kind of identity document, including passports, identity documents, and drivers’ licenses to detect possible spoofs and forgeries in file data, according to the announcement. AI-based techniques detect and show manipulated areas with a heat map indicating the forgery. The technology can also be used to analyze a PDF and JPEG files of payroll, invoices, and receipts. The software was developed in collaboration with the atlanTTic research center at the Universidade de Vigo.
“After many years working in the multimedia security field, we have developed -in collaboration with atlanTTic research center- a tool that allows us to automatically verify in a few seconds whether or not a document has been manipulated,” comments Gradiant Multimodal Information Director Daniel González.
Gradiant Valida can detect if a document image has been captured from a screen, and is not a photo of an original document, and does not require connection to external databases, such as those associated with identity documents.
2019 is the second year in a row that Gradiant has participated in 4YFN.
Gradiant recently signed an MOU with Encartele to work on technological innovations for safety in correctional facilities.
