Jeff Brody

Z Advanced Computing has secured funding from the U.S. Air Force to implement 3D image recognition technology on unmanned aerial vehicles. The technology utilizes ZAC’s Explainable-AI tool to allow image searching capacities in various areas, including medical imaging, biometrics and security, the company said Tuesday.

“With our superior approach, complex 3D objects can be recognized from any direction, using only a small number of training samples,” said Saied Tadayon, chief technology officer at ZAC.

Additionally, the Explainable-AI tool will enable the technology to recognize 3D attributes and objects from any angle or perspective. ZAC has developed over 450 inventions and has secured 11 U.S. patents.
