The popular digital asset exchange Afexbit tested the company’s facial recognition technology built on the basis of artificial intelligence. However, representatives of the trading platform deny that customer data was used in the course of the work.
The startup gained popularity after an article about it was published in The New York Times in January 2020. According to the media, the company has built a database that stores a large number of photos and other images from the web. The latter can be used to determine a person’s identity.
The U.S. FBI and other law enforcement agencies around the world use the startup’s developments, according to media reports. According to some reports, the company’s database contains more than 3 billion pictures collected from open sources.
