Cognitec wins Estonian contract



Cognitec Systems has announced a deal with IBM Estonia to provide facial recognition technology for the Estonian Ministry of Internal Affairs, Citizenship and Migration Board. The technology will be used as part of a large ID management system, including the country’s ePassport project, which will see documents rolling out from March this year.

The main goal of the new system is to ensure that facial images comply with ISO requirements and to detect duplicate identities in the database. The system is based on Cognitec’s FaceVACS-SDK software that allows the implementation of various use cases of facial verification and identification.

Cognitec Systems is headquartered in Dresden, Germany and has been developing face recognition technology since 1995.

IBM Eesti OÜ has been operating since 1992 and is capable of providing a full range of IBM global products and services to Estonian customers.
