ART VERIFICATION AND IDENTIFICAION

FULL DOCUMENT INCLUDING IMAGES (PDF)

Thank you for your request for an ART RECOGNTION SYSTEM.  I-Cube focuses on providing imaging solutions to a wide range of superb customers, including AVIS, SPOORNET, Authorities, High-Veld Steel, Casinos, ILLOVO, to name a few.  Each solution is unique to our customers and adds substantially to the competitive advantage of the company, differentiating the corporation from a host of competitors.  The ability to integrate the imaging solution proposed into existing processes and to expand and develop new means of recurring income makes the I-Cube imaging solutions unique.

 

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION: The front end is proposed to consist of the current Pexicon - Digital Media Solutions web site where subscribed users could:

 

-         Submit images to the database for verification via a digital signature;

 

-         Receive an alarm via an SMS / E-Mail if an image is submitted they are interested in;

 -         Receive monthly updates;

SYSTEM OPERATION: The system allows subscribed users to add art work (pictures) to the web site as a high-resolution jpeg.

The image is then updated into the database and can be searched for by authorised users (those who have paid for the ability).

When a match is found, the user, the insurance company and the person who submitted the image are notified by e-mail / SMS or a call.

 IMAGE ABOVE:  The image is uploaded via the web site OR via E-Mail or FTP along with the name, surname and contacts details of the person.

 IMAGE RIGHT: 

Where a number of images exist these can be BATCH LOADED into the image database (show on the right).

 IMAGE ABOVE: An example of the type of data that can be associated with the image

 IMAGE RIGHT:  Each image submitted would have a unique signature:

AF03-4FD9-32B3-BD1B-2826-EF0E-95A1-C6F1

IMAGE ABOVE: One of the above images is not the same.  Each image was verified with the image signature, showing that the image on the right is not the same.

 The image signatures are:

 AF03-4FD9-32B3-BD1B-2826-EF0E-95A1-C6F1

AF03-4FD9-32B3-BD1B-2826-EF0E-95A1-C6F1

3D0E-A25D-F6E1-4E5E-F8D0-7C70-91DD-93FF

 IMAGE ABOVE: Where different angles, cameras, resolution and people take the images, it is crucial to be able to REGISTER the two images, by finding common points of interest within each image.  This is done by moving the red crosses (1-4) to the same point in each image, so that the image is warped to these points

IMAGE ABOVE: One of the above images above is not the same as the other 2.  Using a number of IMAGE OPERATIONS the similarities and differences are highlighted in the bottom images.  The image on the right is the one that is different from the two that have not been modified.

 TECHNICAL DETAILS: Image submission via name and unique number and a high resolution, uniformly lighted JPEG.

Local submission time before able to search = 80s (does not include time to enter image name, transmission speed etc.)

Search parameters = name, unique number and high res digital image (JPEG)

Search time = 4s

 The utilisation of neural network imaging software allows continual regeneration of the templates as further images are continually added to the database.  It is crucial that similar images are appropriately identified and that similar images are classified preventing incorrect identification. The generation of "templates" of each image is performed over about 80s, there after the search time is substantially reduced.

 POSSIBLE ADDITIONAL MARKETING OPPERTUNITIES:

       “ART THOU STOLEN”

 BUYERS OF POSSIBLE STOLEN ART WORK

 The potential buyer would submit a high resolution evenly illuminated JPEG (11 mega pixel) into the database along with their contact details.  For a once off fee the potential owner would immediately be informed if a duplicate existed on the site or if the art work was detected to have been stolen or involved in a crime.

  IMAGE RIGHT:  A result of a search indicates that the image currently exists in the database.

    OWNERS OF ART WORK

 The owner would submit a high resolution evenly illuminated JPEG (11 mega pixel) into the database along with owner contact details.  For a monthly fee the owner would immediately be informed if a duplicate was submitted to the site or if a stolen art work was detected.

    CREATORS OF ART WORK

  The creators would submit a high resolution evenly illuminated JPEG (11 mega pixel) into the database along with creator contact details.  For a monthly fee the creator would immediately be informed if a duplicate was submitted to the site or if a stolen art work was detected.  Where the art work is regularly submitted this can be made available to the artist.

 NEXT STEP: If the above captures the essence of the project, the minor technical changes and modifications can be sorted out in a project meeting and project plan.

 If required a LIVE DEMO of the above can be arranged, including any appropriate art images supplied. 

Please note that there is a consulting fee of R8 500.00 due before any live demo.  This is due to opportunity costs and ensures that your interest is at an appropriate level.  This amount is then deducted from any future orders.
