Hummingbirds AI uses computer vision to make authentication, passwordless, autonomous and continuous.
Hummingbirds AI stood out for its strong business model and privacy-first biometric authentication technology, maximizing workforce productivity, while keeping the devices secure, making authentication passwordless, safe and continuous.
Just last month Hummingbirds AI won the Vision Tank Competition 2022, committed to developing the most advanced computer vision technology to change the world so that employees’ life can unfold to their best. With this aim in mind, Hummingbirds AI has developed GuacamoleID, the only privacy-first facial biometric tool to eliminate repetitive MFA during an active session, and welcomes a passwordless re-authentication that is time-saving and frictionless.
Questioned by Forbes about the future of cyber solutions in a systemic risk context, Hummingbirds AI CEO Nima Schei puts it this way: “cyber risk is an exponential risk, with real-world consequences, but it is treated as a linear risk. The gap between our needs and our resources is exponentially getting wider and wilder.” To bridge this gap, Hummingbirds developed GuacamoleID.
GuacamoleID is the first continuous video-based biometric authentication app to address the most common entry point of systemic risk into complex digital systems: the human interface. GuacamoleID applies real-time facial biometric technology to continuously confirm the identity of the person using the device, which strengthens the authentication process by making it real-time, accurate, user-friendly, and persistent.
For CEO Nima Schei, serial tech entrepreneur and founder of Hummingbirds AI, GuacamoleID is the key to painless authentication that protects devices seamlessly when the user is not around.
