Cutting Edge Identity Protection Using Machine Learning and Biometrics
January 2016 - Ongoing
TrustStamp is a computer vision and biometric startup that provides identity and trust as a Service to answer two fundamental questions: “Who are you?” and “Do I trust you?”. 10Clouds has been providing a staff augmentation service for TrustStamp for over 5 years, including Python developers specialized in Machine Learning and data processing.
10C engineers were highly involved in TrustStamp’s R&D projects. They worked with strong collaboration or under the supervision of the client's main Data Scientist. Still, developers had much independence in their day-to-day work, including both implementation and research.
Introduction and Goals
TrustStamp is a pioneering startup that utilizes advanced computer vision and biometric technologies to offer a unique Identity and Trust as a Service solution.
The collaboration between 10Clouds and TrustStamp extends beyond mere staff augmentation. Their highly skilled engineers have played an integral role in TrustStamp's ambitious research and development projects. Working closely with TrustStamp's esteemed Data Scientist, the 10C engineers have shared a strong collaborative bond.
This unique working dynamic has fostered a mutually beneficial relationship, as the developers at 10Clouds are not only able to contribute to TrustStamp's cutting-edge solutions but also continuously enhance their own skill sets.
The most frequent problem was to find the encoding of an object. The encoding is a fixed-size vector of numbers. Some projects had also restrictions on the maximal size due to limited resources of the final device. Another class of problems was to detect malicious data and attacks on existing systems.
Also, many smaller issues had to be solved while working on the whole algorithm like answering the questions: is the quality of a picture good enough? Where is the object on an image? how to increase the amount of data and/or its quality?
The mix of collaboration and independence has allowed TrustStamp to leverage the diverse perspectives and innovative ideas brought forth by the 10C engineers, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the realm of identity verification and trust services.
Proof of Liveness
Anti-money laundering and KYC solutions
The team members become very engaged with the project as a business, not just as a coding exercise. They tend to do research and bring their own ideas to the table for product improvement, including competitive analysis. That has proven to be very valuable.
10Clouds has consistently impressed the client with its high-quality deliverables and the tangible value provided. This has created a strong sense of satisfaction and excitement within the client's team, as they recognize the potential for further scaling their project in collaboration with 10Clouds.
However, the client also acknowledges that their DevOps team still needs to ramp up to meet the demands of the project's future growth. This realization further underscores the importance of the ongoing partnership with 10Clouds, as they have not only demonstrated their technical expertise but also their ability to seamlessly integrate with the client's team.
Moving forward, the client is confident that by leveraging the combined strengths of TrustStamp and 10Clouds, they will be able to successfully navigate the challenges of scaling their project.
