Gradiant at CES 2019 next January


Gradiant has been selected to participate at this event, second year in a row, to showcase new innovative technology solutions at Eureka ParkTM 

The ‘Consumer Electronics Show (CES)’ is the most important international trade fair for consumer technology

Gradiant opens next year 2019 taking part at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019, the international fair with the greatest impact for the telecommunications sector and the consumer technologies industry. From January 8th to 11th, Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) hosts this annual event that has become the most important global appointment to present the latest innovations in the technology market.

Gradiant has been selected to have its own space at Eureka ParkTM (Sands Expo, Level 1, Hall G, booth 52917), a specific area within the CES that will bring together the 800 most promising world’s tech companies, centres and start-ups of the year that can provide the solutions innovative technologies.

Hand in hand with the ICEX, this is the second time that Gradiant attends Consumer Electronic Show. In the upcoming edition, the technology centre is showing new technology solutions to detect fraud and manipulation of ID documents and images oriented to digital onboarding and Know Your Customer (KYC) processes.


Technologies to prevent fraud

The world has changed, and we live in an increasingly digital environment in which customers do not have to be physically present to open a bank account or take out insurance on their vehicle. While this scenario provides great advantages for customers and businesses such as easy shopping and customer growth, it also carries security problems like fraud or manipulations of documents and user verifications. Insurance companies and banks, for instance, with online processes, already need mechanisms to authenticate and verify the thousands of ID documents they daily receive in digital processes.

It is essential to provide technology for the protection and identification of multimedia files (video, image and audio) that can ensure document security. Techniques such as digital watermarking -to highlight illegal use of a digital service by an unauthorized user-, robust hashing, multimedia forensics, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, combined or on their own, make manipulations and falsifications detection faster and easier.

Gradiant has been developing for ten years different projects in multimedia security to different sectors, such as the authenticity or the traceability of printed documents to identify the person responsible for the custody of a certain document in filtration cases. To help companies to prevent fraud, Gradiant has developed a solution based on image forensics technology that detects forgeries in ID documents, photos or other files. The democratization of technology has made file falsifications (such as photos and ID documents) increasingly imperceptible to companies and institutions.


An international event with more than 180 thousand attendees

With almost 4.500 exhibitors companies (manufacturers, developers and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems), CES has a conference program with more than 250 sessions; and more than 180 thousand attendees from 150 countries. The CES is grouped into several Marketplaces that function as exhibition areas for new markets of technology, products, services and promising companies, from videogames and robotics, to smart houses and 3D printing.

One of these Marketplaces is Eureka ParkTM  a buzzworthy start up area that provides a unique opportunity to launch a new product, service or idea. Here is where big break in the tech industry shows up.
