Company description

Viewdle is about capture in the moment.  We’re focused on enabling consumers to manage, tag, and share their media as they create it, anywhere.  

Viewdle was founded in 2007, with the vision of helping people share and tag all of their photos and videos on any media creation device - from servers to laptops to mobile phones - through visual analysis and facial recognition technology. 

Initially developed in The Cybernetics Institute in Kiev, Ukraine., more than 10 years of research and development has gone into Viewdle’s technology.  Viewdle runs the world’s largest independent visual analysis research team with 8 PhDs and 30 other visual analysis specialists.  Its core technology has been independently benchmarked as the fastest and most efficient available.
Viewdle’s first consumer product, is focused on harnessing the power of people’s social family and friend network, so users can automatically tag people in their photos and easily manage albums from their desktop to Facebook.  Viewdle on the desktop makes it so that you'll never have to tag photos again.

 


Competitive advantage

Viewdle's facial recognition engine is very scalable (less than 1% of false positive, on a database of 34,000 reference people, and growing), and fast (real-time performances on simple off-the-shelf servers, with sub-linear dependency to the size of the reference database). The technology is based on proprietary algorithms, developed by Viewdle's R&D team in Ukraine.
