Nodeflux achieves TKDN certification for AI surveillance
Nodeflux says it has become the first domestic AI software company in Indonesia to earn the Domestic Component Level (TKDN) certification with a score of up to 99.04 percent, allowing it to enter the LKPP e-catalog from the government for VisionAIre products.
The certification is a government program which aims to encourage optimum performance of national industries through productivity and competitiveness in the delivery of strategic state-funded projects.
“This TKDN certificate complements the performance of VisionAIre Docker from Nodeflux, which was previously also an AI company from Indonesia, which was the first to pass the NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) test from the United States as a facial recognition vendor,” says Meidy Fitranto, Nodeflux CEO.
Fitranto says earning the certification is a big boost for Nodeflux, a company operating in an environment dominated by foreign AI suppliers.
Nodeflux’s chief business officer, Ivan Tigana, says “of the five legal institutions in Indonesia, four of them have adopted VisionAIre.”
