In 2000, a team of computer scientists founded Image Metrics to create consumer applications around computer vision, facial analysis and recognition technologies. Numerous patents and 60 man-years of research later, Image Metrics today delivers a vital element to companies looking to enable new experiences with games, devices and other online environments.
Complex, proprietary algorithms make the recognition of nuanced gestures and emotion (down to the wink of an eye and smirk in a smile) possible with nothing more than a camera from a laptop, tablet or smartphone. The opportunities for self-representation and personalized content control are endless. Image Metrics technology can be integrated into devices, strategically leveraged in game or app or licensed by a developer through SDKs.
The company is headquartered in Santa Monica, Calif. and has a research and development office in Manchester, UK.
