GDPR Compliant Data Collection
In cooperation with Brighter AI, we present the first solution for the efficient acquisition of image data in public space built upon the highest data protection standards. Based on the „data protection by design” approach, faces and license plates in the image data are replaced by synthetically generated counterparts. This enables comprehensive protection of the identity without compromising the data e.g. for evaluation with artificial intelligence. The low power consumption and dimensions enable fully automatic data collection, for example in vehicles and vehicle fleets. The system is therefore suitable for efficient data acquisition in smart cities, for autonomous driving or for creating high-resolution digital maps (HD maps).
Next Generation Face-Pixelation System
We are happy to announce the next generation of our real-time AI face pixelation system for GDPR compliant Live-Broadcasts. The system is based on our software used first on 18.09.2019 during the premiere of AI in German live TV in the show “Bundespolizei Live” produced by Spiegel TV and Kabel 1 and is currently the only AI Pixelation software with a prooven trackrecord in German live TV. The new generation system will enable a more flexible and reliable real-time pixelation under high demand live-broadcast conditions. Next to software the system will comprise the full hardware required to use the system on the set.

Founding member of AI-Frankfurt e.V.
(11-12-2019) Evotegra is proud founding member of AI Franfurt e.V.
The association AI-Frankfurt e.V. sees itself as an institution for the promotion of artificial intelligence (AI) in the Rhine-Main region. Its task is bringing together the various actors from science, business and society in the field of research and development related to artificial intelligence, as well as potential users and solution providers active in this field as well as public administration and government agencies, and to accompany the social discourse in order to achieve the common goal of the successful and responsible integration of artificial intelligence in everyday economic and social life.
Premiere of AI in German live-TV
In a premiere on German TV in the TV-show ” Bundespolizei Live – Großkontrolle an der Grenze” on 18.09.2019 by Spiegel TV and Kabel1 our software for live-pixelation of faces was used for the first time in production. The AI software provided by Evotegra GmbH processes 50 HD television pictures per second and detects and obscures all faces in the image. This enables us to meet the particularly high demands on the protection of personal rights in cooperation with the Federal Police. Due to Evotegra GmbH’s high-performance AI software platform, it was possible to realize the project in a mere 4 weeks from initial request to live-broadcast. Three servers, each with one GPU, processed approximately 1 gigabyte of data per second during the 2-hour transmission.
Many thanks to the great team of Kabel1, Spiegel TV and partners for the excellent cooperation and support.
Data collection system successfully tested
Autonomous car implemented and tested
(10-07-2019) Evotegra successfully implemented and tested a mapless autonomous car. All relevant software and hardware was developed in-house and the costs for hardware excluding the car fits into a $10k budget. Impossible? See yourself.
AI in Depth
(02-07-2019) In cooperation with our partner Becom we just published our experience with Time of Flight (ToF) cameras in combination with Deep Learning in the well known InVision magazine. Depth adds more entropy compared to color in most use-cases and hence deep learning has the potential to achieve higher recognition rates compared to common RGB images. 3D sensors with synchronous images in combination with Deep Learning will play a major role in many industrie use-cases in the coming years.
