Viewdle, a mobile focused visual analysis company, has released a software development kit (SDK) that will allow gadgets such as smartphones to integrate the app in their own products.
The facial recognition SDK from Viewdle has been optimised for the OMAP 4 Blaze mobile development platform from Texas Instruments. It appears that Viewdle intends to offer the technology to original equipment manufacturers so that they may integrate it in their operating systems.
Viewdle’s co founder and chief executive officer Laurent Gil says, ” The Viewdle face recognition technology needs very little processing power, thus making it ideal for the mobile computing segment, in which processing power is the most sought after commodity.”
Right now there is only one Viewdle product available, called Viewdle Uploader, which is a desktop program, but more programs such as ViewdleFaces, ViewdlePlaces and ViewdleGames will be in the market soon.
