identity document and smartphone

iDenfy has partnered with document recognition software developer Smart Engines to make its identification processes more secure and efficient, utilizing the company’s versatile AI driven solutions for document data extraction.

“iDenfy is a strong player on EU market with a great expertise in user verification. Our partnership with iDenfy shows that our document recognition solution makes the user experience more comfortable, technological and modern. At the same time, a high level of security in accordance with international standards for personal data protection is ensured,” says Vladimir Arlazarov, Smart Engines’ founder and CEO.

Smart ID Engine covers 210 jurisdictions worldwide, supporting 100 languages; and allows capture and extraction of the required data from various document types, such as reporting forms (such as tax declarations), accounting, financial, legal, and notarial documentation, according to Smart Engine’s website. ID card processing time is between 130 to 150 milliseconds per single frame, using the identity document’s security features for validation is known as computational document forensics. The software works in all natural lighting conditions, and offers the capability to extract photos from identity documents, whilst maintaining data privacy practices, as documents are not shared with third party servers, nor are any cloud servers used.

The company’s GreenOCR technology provides a framework of 8-bit and 4-bit pipelines for deep neural network inferencing to minimize the energy consumed by processors, according to the announcement.

Smart Engine’s technology was recently chosen by Citibank to verify client documents in Russia, and its technology will now enable iDenfy to significantly improve its document scanning service, according to the announcement.

“Smart Engines’ years of research and development in document recognition and Green AI will help us improve our ID verification service. With their comprehensive document authentication technology, we will be able to verify documents more quickly and confidently without causing any significant harm to the environment,” says Domantas Ciulde, iDenfy CEO. “In partnership with Smart Engines, we won’t need to compromise on the speed, accuracy, and data privacy when it comes to ID verification.”

iDenfy currently provides 98.4 percent accuracy AI-powered facial recognition, according to its website, including data scanning and surface analysis. This covers 1300 document types in over 200 countries, the system is able to match 160 face points, incorporating biometric liveness detection.

This post was updated at 10:10am Eastern on January 7, 2021 to correct the product used by iDenfy and that Smart Engines develops its technology for solutions providers rather than providing them itself.
