With that, I’m extremely excited to announce the appointment of Dr. Stephen Moore as our Chief Scientific Officer.
Stephen will lead a strong team of AI researchers, engineers, and technologists, in our new office in Singapore. He will also be crucial to our expansion into the Asia Pacific.
President Obama reminded Americans in his first term that America has neighbors on both it’s Atlantic and it’s Pacific coasts. That was not lost on us— as we broaden the markets in which we compete. At Kairos, we see great promise in the region, and feel confident that having a strong presence and leader there in Dr. Moore, is integral to our growth efforts in Singapore and beyond. His talents in combination with his connections in Europe and Asia will prove invaluable to our growth.
“Face recognition is on the edge of proliferation in our society. Kairos is one of the few technology companies that are guiding this process in a ethical manner. I am super excited to work for a cutting edge technology company that is forward thinking about the technology and deliberate about the way it is used in the world. Kairos has an excellent and ambitious team, and I’m looking forward to working them in making sure that face recognition becomes as inclusive as it is innovative.”
Dr. Stephen Moore is an expert in the area of AI, machine learning, and computer vision with 10 years of experience building and designing systems for real-world use cases. He is entrepreneurial minded and loves new challenges that require a combination of innate technical aptitude and exceptional business acumen to drive innovation and generate growth. Stephen is a proven leader holding several C-level positions in computer vision startups.
He co-founded Emotion Reader, a world leading emotion measurement platform in 2017 that was backed by Enterprise Ireland, and holds a PhD in Computer Vision from the University of Surrey, UK, specializing in the area of facial expression recognition.
Dr. Stephen Moore is a brilliant addition to our team, and we are looking forward to the impact of his leadership in the development of state of the art AI. He is joining us at a time when advancement in our industry must reflect deliberate inclusion and consideration.

To achieve our mission, it’s critical we attract the best to our team. We’re determined to grow Kairos aggressively into 2019, so if you’re interested in joining us, keep your eye on our Careers Page!
Threat actors use generative AI deepfakes to create or manipulate facial images for identity fraud. The process involves either generating new faces or altering existing images tailored to the victim's identity or created to pass as a legitimate user using generative AI. To address the problem specific image capture security protocols and a robust liveness algorithm should be used to effectively block generative AI spoofing attempts.
This guide outlines essential practices for capturing and uploading ID documents and selfies, ensuring a smooth and secure digital onboarding experience. By adhering to these guidelines, users can significantly enhance the accuracy of identity verification, reducing errors and improving the overall success rate.
As the landscape of digital identity verification rapidly evolves, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is at the forefront, reshaping traditional approaches. This deep dive into AI's role in identity verification is for those familiar with the nuances of data science and computer science.
Deep Learning, particularly Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), has revolutionized facial recognition technology. This layered approach enables the model to discern intricate facial patterns, enhancing recognition accuracy. Backpropagation, a key mechanism in CNNs, refines these features, significantly improving the model's ability to distinguish subtle facial characteristics.
Misidentification of people based on ethnicity, gender, and age plagues the facial recognition industry, and it’s a continuing mission of ours to fix this problem.
In our increasingly digital world, 'IDV' or identity verification is more than a buzzword; it's a fundamental component of online security and trust.
Kairos, the Miami based face recognition provider who gained global attention in 2018 for its early stance to highlight algorithm bias in face recognition systems, has brought back Brian Brackeen, the founder of the company who in the same year was separated from his position as CEO preceding a legal battle which ended in Brackeen’s favor.
Google Next is Google’s annual conference focusing on their cloud computing offering, Google Cloud Platform. Thanks to our great Google Cloud account team in Miami, we were able to attend this year and learn about Google’s new announcements, network with experts and other peer companies, and get some in depth knowledge about GCP.
Every month, we’re bringing you the best news and views on the most compelling topic in technology today—Identity. All lovingly curated by the team at Kairos.
Facial Recognition is in big demand with businesses all over the world—from preventing fraud to enabling more profitable customer experiences; it’s becoming the natural authority on identity. Which is why we’re excited to announce a renewed partnership between Kairos and RapidAPI—the leading API marketplace for software developers.
Last week I attended the 2nd Annual Biometric Summit in New York City. It was hosted at a cool co-working space called “Rise” that’s sponsored by Barclays Bank and TechStars incubator. It was one of the smaller summits I have attended, with a single track and about 100 attendees—ranging from biometric vendors and end-users to analysts (? Alan Goode) and investors.
As Kairos’ Director of Product Integration, I’m on the front lines when it comes to customer inquiries. From pet detection to weight detection, I’ve heard it all. While some ideas are more far-fetched than others, the common trends cannot be ignored—and these represent innovations that are happening NOW.
From getting the latest TechCrunch headlines on your phone, to booking a Lyft to your office—APIs are powering most of the products and services we all take for granted each day. They make the world move.
This month, CB Insights mapped out the top-funded AI startups in every US state—and, Miami based face recognition company, Kairos came out on top for Florida.
