????????Ukrainians Veronica Yurchuk and Kostyantyn Shysh founded Traces.ai last year in the USA????????. The startup utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze video using 2000 different attributes of a person, except their face,
Now, the founders are coming full circle as governments around the world???? are getting in touch to learn how Traces can be used to identify people who have come into contact with virus patients.
????“This tech could be deployed very early to trace who came into close proximity with those diagnosed. We’re in talks with Asian governments about using it for contact tracing and there’s the possibility it can be combined with a thermal vision not only to track contacts of confirmed cases but also to monitor others based on temperature levels. Our technology is successful if deployed early enough, so cities like London, Tokyo, and New York would benefit from contact tracing for other viruses in the future.”
Veronica Yurchuk and Kostyantyn Shysh founded Traces.ai in Sunnyvale, California last year, when San Francisco and two other cities banned the use of facial recognition in video and still image analysis.
