The system identifies over 100 different parameters and can tell live person from deep fake
Pangea IT, an Israeli supplier of digital transformation solutions for government and enterprise organizations, has announced it will be acquiring the assets of Sensority – an Israeli startup which develops IoT devices.
The acquisition, which includes patents, technologies and products developed by the latter for Liveness Detection and the visual identification and analysis of psychological stress (VSA), will enable Pangea to offer AI-based solutions for psychophysiological analysis around the world.
The technology analyzes subjects' stress level based on physiological indicators and detects when, and in response to which questions, the stress level increases. The system – which identifies over 100 different psychophysiological parameters and uses patented algorithms that define the stress level – analyzes real-time video of the subject's face and can identify whether the image represents a living person rather than a photo or a deepfake.
During the process, the system provides assessments that include psychological insights based on artificial intelligence. Security officers receive text or audio alerts about anomalous detections and are able to build a psychological profile of the subject in real time.
Sensority's technology was developed with a major investment of millions of dollars, and of approximately 100 man-years. Three patents were filed during development, one of which was approved while the other two are nearing the end of the process. To date, the system has been sold in 15 countries around the world.
Pangea plans to add the technology to the portfolio of the products that it sells on the global market and to integrate them into its existing solutions in the field of border control and secure IDs. Furthermore, Pangea has established a new company under the management of Assaf Kaminer, which will develop applications for public safety and government.
"We're delighted by the major addition of technologies developed by Sensority. We're confident that their integration into the company's current offering will grant us a unique advantage and position the company at the technological forefront of similar products," said Rafi Kaminer, Founder and CEO of Pangea.
According to Kaminer, "The unprecedented congestion at airports and other sensitive points around the world has generated enormous demand for high-quality tech solutions that will shorten and improve the welfare of the passengers."
