Image Analysis Software Consulting and Development
Image analysis (IA) is the identification of attributes within an image via digital image processing techniques to make the IA process more accurate and cost-effective.
Since 2013, ScienceSoft helps both product companies and non-IT enterprises gain a competitive advantage by developing IA software.
Image Analysis Core Tasks
Distinguish regions of interest for further analysis, individual objects from the background, etc.
Label or classify objects in digital images based on one or several object classes: people, vehicles, electronic components, etc.
Recognize individual features of an object and classify it with more precision: identify individual people, specific vehicles, animal species, device models, etc.
