Intenseye, a leader in AI-powered workplace safety solutions, has introduced its latest patent-pending technology – a revolutionary 3D anonymization technique for ensuring workplace safety while maintaining employee privacy at the highest level. Intenseye has already implemented facial blurring techniques to prevent retaliation and protect the identities of individuals. They have obtained SOC 2 Type I and II certifications to validate their policies and procedures for security, availability, privacy, and confidentiality and became the only safety AI platform that is fully compliant with SOC 2 and GDPR data privacy standards. Now with 3D Anonymization technique, the platform has further solidified its commitment to ethical and responsible AI practices in its management of personal data.
With this cutting-edge anonymization method, Intenseye’s AI renders individuals in workplace settings completely unidentifiable, without compromising the overall context to detect unsafe acts and conditions. This breakthrough is achieved through the use of advanced deep learning algorithms, which identify individuals at first. Then follow individual’s every movement in 3D space until they move out of the scene. The algorithms then perform 3D keypoint detection, capturing postures by detecting limbs and joints. Intenseye’s unique 3D anonymization technique then removes the individuals from the scene and places realistic rendered animation on the inpainted image, ensuring irreversible anonymization.
Intenseye believes that workplace safety and employee privacy should be equally important. To support this principle, the platform have added a new feature that allows its users to remove timestamps from the visual data that the platform’s AI processes. This feature removes all timestamps from CCTV camera footage and lists the footage in a randomized order to prevent privacy violations and ensure employee privacy is maintained at the highest level. These changes ensure that no worker can be identified by the time of a safety incident, and their privacy is fully protected. By doing so, a culture of safety can be maintained without compromising worker anonymity.
Intenseye tracks incidents, not individuals
Unlike traditional surveillance systems, Intenseye’s solution is specifically designed to track incidents rather than individuals. By utilizing advanced face-blurring and 3D anonymization algorithms, Intenseye’s software maintains employee privacy and protects their personal information, fostering a sense of psychological safety and trust in the workplace.
“Workplace safety is of paramount importance, and we believe that it can be achieved without compromising employee privacy,” said Melih Yönet, Head of Legal at Intenseye. “Our innovative software is a testament to this belief, as it allows businesses to effectively monitor and improve safety conditions while respecting the privacy of their workforce.” With a focus on physical and psychological safety, Intenseye’s software is an invaluable asset for businesses looking to create a safer and more secure working environment for their employees. By tracking incidents rather than individuals, our solution not only reduces workplace accidents but also fosters a culture of trust and respect among employees and accordingly contributes to psychological safety in workplaces.
