  • Stream Relevance : Stream Relevance is a process to selectively materialize activities which are most relevant to a viewing user on social networks. It consists of identifying relevance ‘factors’, combining them (weighted) to get a Relevancy Index, adding stream diversity and delivering highly relevant activities to the end user. There is also a relevance measurement part (using User testing ) that converts a subjective opinion of relevance to an objective score, so that we can compare two streams and determine which one is more relevant than the other.

  • Automated Facial Recognition And Image Tagging : A high through put system for automatically and efficiently generating Facial Identification Records (FIR) from existing photos which have been manually tagged prior.
    The process includes an algorithm to ‘wash’ existing tags and identify ones which can be used to generate a FIR which has a high probability of representing the user for later recognition and verification.
    The generated ‘good’ FIRs can then be used to automatically recognize and tag the corresponding person in other photos.
