Innovating for a Safer Future: The Impactful Collaboration Between brighter AI and Intel on Data Privacy

19. December 2023

brighter AI, a pioneering force in privacy-enhancing technologies, and Intel Corporation, a global leader in computing innovation, are thrilled to announce the highly successful outcome of their collaborative efforts in optimizing privacy-preserving solutions.

In this strategic partnership, brighter AI and Intel have worked in tandem to enhance the performance of brighter AI’s precision blur and deep natural anonymization solutions. Leveraging the Intel OpenVINO toolkit on 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs resulted in an impressive 2x performance improvement over the unoptimized model, presenting a more efficient and resource-friendly solution.

In line with brighter AI’s commitment to innovation and customer-centric solutions, the company is actively exploring avenues to provide a CPU-only version of its redact suite. This version, optimized using Intel’s powerful toolkits, will ensure compatibility and enhanced performance on Intel platforms. Importantly, this approach aligns seamlessly with brighter AI’s overarching strategy, emphasizing the company’s dedication to serving a wide range of customers on all platforms and environments.

brighter AI’s precision blur and deep natural anonymization solutions are designed to protect the privacy of individuals in images and videos, such as faces, license plates, or other sensitive information. The solutions use state-of-the-art deep learning techniques to generate realistic synthetic replacements for the original data, ensuring high visual quality and data utility.

The Intel OpenVINO toolkit is a comprehensive toolkit for developing and deploying vision-oriented solutions on Intel platforms. It enables fast and efficient inference of deep learning models across a wide range of use cases and hardware configurations.

The collaboration between brighter AI and Intel Corporation demonstrates the mutual commitment of both companies to advancing privacy-preserving technologies and enabling data-driven innovation in various domains, such as smart cities, mobility, retail, or healthcare.
